Trees for Life - Long Term Volunteering Placement

Places for this year's LTV programme are now full, but you can join our waiting list by sending in an application form - attached below.

Trees for Life is expanding its Long-term Volunteer Programme and is providing opportunities for enthusiastic individuals to gain experience in practical conservation work at Dundreggan Conservation Estate. Dundreggan is an expanse of wild land near Loch Ness where Trees for Life is working to expand the Caledonian Forest. Set in stunning scenery, Dundreggan is 35 mile SW of Inverness.

As part of a team of volunteers you will work on a range of innovative conservation projects with a focus on native woodland establishment and regeneration. Tasks will include working on our expanding tree nursery, tree planting, fertilising, felling and ring barking non-native trees. There will also be opportunities to join our regular residential groups and day volunteers.

We are offering placements for one to three months from March - October 2015. We will provide accommodation and a weekly food allowance along with relevant training. Volunteers will need to have a good level of fitness as there are long walks across mountainous terrain to most planting sites. Volunteers will be required to work for five days each week and may also be asked to work at weekends.

Please return completed application forms to Kirsty Ellen at kirsty@treesforlife.org.uk  or call or email for further details (01309 691292).
