Getting involved

We regularly offer short-term volunteering opportunities for young people, aged 16 to 25.

Our placements are especially beneficial for those looking for a career in the environmental/countryside sector. They can also be used to help you gain the nationally recognised John Muir Award?

From working with Ranger Team to collecting data on pollinator species. From small mammal trapping to nature photography, our placements will help you gain valuable skills and knowledge while working in the Northumberland National Park.

It was fantastic to be able to learn about the conservation of cultural heritage and the interaction of this with public education and recreation through spending time with the Hadrian’s Wall National Trail ranger and the park Archaeologist. Conducting a public rights of way survey gave me an insight into the management of opportunities for public recreation in the national park.
