Local conservation organisations offer a variety of guided walks, events and education days across The Lizard. Helping out with these events is the perfect way to get out and about, learn more about the area and meet other like-minded people. Volunteering in this area can also help if you are trying to build your skills fora future career in conservation, as events experience is now a 'must' for any CV. You don't need to be an expert to help us with any of the opportunities below; we are just looking for an enthusiastic, friendly face!
Want a more regular commitment?
Lizard Wireless Station - If you have a few hours to spare once a fortnight, and you have an interest in local history and like chatting to people, then volunteering at Lizard Wireless Station may be for you. We are always looking for additional people to join our enthusiastic band of volunteers who open this small museum, home to some of Marconi's pioneering radio experiments, to the public. Volunteers tend to do one 3-hr shift a fortnight between Easter and October, but all help is appreciated.
