At WWT, we shape unforgettable experiences. By working as part of the Grounds Volunteer team you will assist with the maintenance of all aspects of gardening within the water and insect gardens at Washington. This will help to provide our visitors with a great day out and encourage them to engage with and support our work to save wetlands for wildlife and people.

We have two gardening roles available - one in our general Grounds Team, who work to keep our grounds looking their best for our visitors and wildlife. The other is a more specific role helping in our water and insect gardens.

Both roles will be involved in tasks such as:

  • Assisting with all aspects of garden maintenance in the water and insect gardens.
  • Assisting with planting, weeding and pruning.
  • Helping us maintain our visitor infrastructure to a high standard including path clearance, and furnishings.
  • Welcoming and engaging visitors.
  • Ensuring the safety, welfare and enjoyment of the visiting public.
  • Promoting the work of WWT to all visitors.
