Get Involved

Volunteering

We are always looking for new volunteers to help us out in the office. We get loads of records from Facebook groups, the Society Jersiaise and through our website. With so many records to input we would welcome volunteers to sort and input records to enable us to maintain and enhance the database of records. Its also great opportunity to see our maps of the rarer species we have on the island!

Looking to help us out practically? We are in the process of training people to help with the EarthWorm Watch. Let us know your interested by giving us a call and we can let you know about our next training workshops.

Education

Schools: 

Looking for memorable lessons that excite and inspire your class? Well look no further as we can offer a range of biodiversity themed sessions either classroom or outdoor based. All free of charge!

This year we are getting the schools of Jersey involved with our EarthWorm Watch linked with the Natural History Museum London. This year we will be conducting an island wide survey for earthworms so if you would like to book a session of earthworm discovery give us a call!

Get your class involved with planning and creating their own environmental programme through the Jane Goodall’s Roots and Shoots. We can offer your school introductory presentations and activities that link with Jersey’s environment.

Universities: 

There is a wide variety of wildlife on Jersey and with our help, we can get your students involved in ecological surveying. We focus mainly on insects and fresh water invertebrates, but there are opportunities for bird watching, butterfly surveying and trips to spot the Green Lizard. Get a full feel for the different types of ecological surveys with the help from local experts as well as seeing some amazing scenery on the island. All free of charge!

Forest School: 

Wanting to get your classes involved with nature and the outdoors? By far the best way is through Forest School. We can offer forest school sessions if you don’t have anyone trained on your staff, or we can offer you advice on planning sessions and new areas in Jersey to explore with your forest school.
