What will I be doing?

  • Our mission is maintain, enhance and safeguard the Park 's landscape as well as encouraging community participation in the Park 's conservation through volunteering and environmental education programmes, such as the River Ranger Project.
  • -The River Ranger programme is looking for volunteers -who are interested in learning and conserving the rivers network and wildlife across the Colne Valley Regional Park.
  • Volunteers play a key role in monitoring and reporting on small stretches of river across the Colne Valley Regional Park. Possible activities include:
  • Surveying of non -native invasive species which damage local ecosystems such as Floating Pennywort and the opportunity to remove the species via practical conservation to help prevent further spread.
  • River walks and monitoring water quality to help identify issues such as pollution incidents earlier enabling quick action.
  • Litter pick walks, community engagement and public events.
