Central Chilterns Volunteer Conservation Group – New Leader Wanted

Our Central Chilterns volunteer conservation group has been running for more than 20 years. During that time it has made a huge contribution to the preservation of ponds and other small conservation sites.

We are looking for a new leader to help the group continue it’s brilliant work. The role would consist of leading a group of up to 15 dedicated volunteers, keeping in touch with local parish councils, organising the group’s volunteer schedule and, of course, working hard to maintain the quality of so many commons, village ponds and conservation sites. The Chiltern Society is dedicated to caring for the Chilterns and this volunteer group plays a vital role in helping us to do that!

This is a weekend conservation group which meets approximately once per month. The work parties take place from 10am – 1pm on a Saturday.

This is a voluntary role from which you will derive huge satisfaction. Ponds, in particular, are a fantastic habitat for so many aquatic plants and support two-thirds of all freshwater species including frogs, newts, toads, beetles and dragonfly larvae. They have a huge impact on many of the environmental issues affecting us today.

All Chiltern Society group leaders are given support and encouragement from a terrific team of trustees and office staff. It’s a role ideally suited to someone who thrives on teamwork!
