Conservation volunteers hard at work
The Trust’s Conservation Volunteer Groups will be hard at work protecting Scotland’s spectacular scenery this summer.

The dedicated volunteers are looking for new members to join them and get involved in caring for Scotland’s landscapes.

The groups will be working on projects at properties cared for by the National Trust for Scotland across the Highlands, Lothian, Perthshire, Grampian or Glasgow areas.

Conservation Volunteer Co-ordinator Julie Bond said:

‘Our conservation volunteers make a massive contribution to the care of the Trust’s 200,000 acres of countryside, historic estates and beautiful gardens. They’ve got a packed programme of activities planned for the next few months. As summer approaches, volunteering with the Trust is a great opportunity to get out, discover our beautiful places and play a key part in caring for our countryside too.’

Three volunteers sit on a bench in a garden, holding mugs of tea.
Tea break!
