Opportunities for all ages
There are many ways you can get involved with Shropshire Wildlife Trust. No matter what it is about nature that inspires you, we've got something for all ages to get involved with...there is always plenty to discover!
We believe every childhood should be wild and have lots of ways for families to engage with nature. From events and birthday parties to exploring nature reserves and rainy day activities.
We have lots of opportunities for young people aged 11 -24. Get involved with our practical wild work days or have a look at work experience and our summer placement scheme.
Volunteer with us
Whether you have just an hour, a day or a week to give, and whatever your skills, there’s an opportunity for you to volunteer with us near where you live.
We offer a range of sessions for primary school children at unique locations such as Darwin's Childhood Garden in Shrewsbury. All of our school sessions are carefully planned to achieve curriculum-linked learning outcomes – but the children don’t need to know that!
