Volunteering Opportunities

There are a range of ways to volunteer with Cairngorms Connect and opportunities vary from long term volunteer placements to regular work parties and family friendly drop in sessions.  We will post all upcoming opportunities on this webpage but you can also sign up to receive a newsletter from Cairngorms Volunteers here.  This is hosted by the Cairngorms National Park Authority and will keep you up to date with all the volunteering opportunities across the National Park.  

Currently volunteering opportunities are limited due to Coronavirus / Covid-19

Each opportunity will have details on how to sign up to get involved:



Tree Nursery Volunteers


We are looking for regular volunteers to help at our community tree nursery on the RSPB Abernethy Reserve.  

Tasks will vary throughout the year and are likely to include collecting and sowing seed, weeding and watering, mowing, pricking out seedlings, digging over beds, and planting trees out on the reserve.  All tools and gloves are provided.  No previous experience is necessary – just a willingness to learn and a passion for trees and the wider environment.

For more information, please contact the tree nursery manager, David at:

They are looking for volunteers to help survey for these invertebrates through this summer while out in the Cairngorms.
