We are seeking a River Stour Enhancement Project Volunteer to support our ambitious plans for improving water quality, biodiversity and habitats within the Stour catchment on the Essex-Suffolk border. 

This role provides the opportunity to gain hands on experience in a range of conservation projects and the chance to hone your practical skills and conservation knowledge. Tree planting and aftercare, non-native invasive species surveys, in-channel restoration projects and supporting community projects are just some of the activities planned for the coming year. The role would ideally suit a recent graduate, or someone looking for a career change to the conservation sector. Previous experience isn\'t necessary, however good organisational skills, motivation and a willingness to work outside in all weathers is essential.
