Volunteering with community greenspace

Working together to maintain, improve and promote our shared spaces for all to enjoy.

Volunteering offers you an opportunity to build new skills, meet new people, use your existing skills to benefit others and to gain valuable work experience.  Watch our short Volunteering video to find out more.

The work of volunteers is essential in many ways to the management and success of local green spaces and we are always keen to welcome more willing volunteers on board!  Find out more about volunteering over at our Volunteers Blog

Groups to Join

There are lots of opportunities for volunteers in the greenspaces around Perth & Kinross. Please contact us or have a look at joining one of the groups below.

Kinnoull Hill

Kinnoull Hill Woodland Park Group

Amphibians

TayARG (Tayside Amphibian & Reptile Group).

Recent surveys across Tayside show that large numbers of amphibians fall into and drown in roadside gullypot drains. We need to know where these locations are and need surveyors to help find them.  Can YOU help?

Full training and equipment will be provided.  Please email: taysideamphibians@yahoo.co.uk or visit www.taysidebiodiversity.co.uk for more information
