Kent Wildlife Trust [KWT] aims to secure a better future for the native wildlife of Kent and Medway. One of the ways in which it does this is to manage valuable or threatened habitats as nature reserves.

No special skills are required, just plenty of enthusiasm, energy, and a desire to help conserve Kent’s wildlife. Gloves & tools are provided.

Make new friends, learn new skills, enjoy a day in the country, have a day of peace & quiet, get a day of exercise in the fresh air. The tasks are suited to all levels of physical ability and volunteers are encouraged to do the task at their own pace. Children under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times. Some tasks may be unsuitable for children so please check in advance with the warden or secretary.

We are able to accommodate International Baccalaureate [IB] and Duke of Edinburgh [DoE] candidates [all levels] seeking creativity,activity, service [CAS] & ‘voluntary service to the environment’ over a period [4 hours each session] & can submit assessments on line by prior arrangement.

We now have a Facebook page! Google ‘rgpnr’ & look for the Facebook site for latest news.
