Like other National Nature Reserves (NNRs) the Lizard’s NNR is a place for people; a place to enjoy nature, to take some exercise and to escape from the pressures of modern life. Our volunteers come from many different backgrounds and are involved in a wide variety of tasks – from scientific surveying, fence building and stock checking to enthusing visitors at our events and visits from school and community groups. There is no minimum time commitment – you choose how much you do.
There are four broad categories of volunteering:
Midweekers – generally Tuesdays and Wednesdays – getting down to the nitty-gritty of day to day habitat management and reserve infrastructure
Eyes`n`Ears – generally people who live near to or regularly visit parts of the NNR, alert us to things we may have missed and generally keep us on the ball
Science and Monitoring – people who have a keen interest in natural history or wish to undertake a particular study project. Helps keep our management on track for wildlife interests.
Education – help organise and run events for schools, groups and visitors
