Volunteer – Community Participation

Around 40,000 people live in the Colne Valley Park, and more than three million live within ten miles of it.

We are committed to promoting community participation through volunteering, organising educational programmes, leading walks, and running conservation work parties etc.

We also support the wide variety of special interest groups and hobby clubs that use the Colne Valley.


If you have some spare time, want to learn new skills or share talents of your own there are plenty of volunteer opportunities in the Colne Valley Regional Park. Come along and get involved with a variety of important conservation tasks to help us look after the Park. See positions below for more details.
