New Young Volunteer Programme

To celebrate the Year of Young People 2018, we are excited to introduce a volunteer programme for young people aged 16 – 25.

‘It was lots of fun because we got to try new things’ – Harriet Holden (Junior Ranger)

Volunteering with us gives you the chance to:

  • Try something new. Doing something different always brings new experiences and sometimes you will find something you really love.
  • Connect with nature. Experience and learn about an abundance of wildlife and nature in the National Park while meeting new friends.
  • Get involved. Whatever you enjoy, there’s a wide range of activities, projects and tasks for you to get involved with.

Please don’t worry: we have plenty of outdoor weatherproof clothing you can borrow, just let us know what you need – getting muddy and wet is part of the fun!

Learning survival skills in the National Park


We currently have the following volunteering opportunities (with more to follow):

  • Saturday 22nd September: stop the invasion of the Rhododendron plant along East Loch Lomond and enjoy learning some survival skills.
    Pick up at Balloch train station at 10am, returning around 4.30pm.
  • Saturday 13th October: improve the amazing Cormonachan Woodland near Loch Goil for the wildife that live there and then take part in some creative shelter building and camping crafts.
    There are pick ups at Dunoon Job Centre at 9am, or alternatively Balloch at 8am or Arrochar at 8:30am. We’ll be returning around 4.30pm.

If you would like to find out more and come along to volunteer please:

We are really excited to be running these volunteer opportunities and look forward to seeing you in the National Park.
