Do good work for the great outdoors, make new friends and help us care for wild places.
Volunteers play an essential part at the John Muir Trust. By becoming a volunteer with us you can help make a difference for the wild places you love, whilst learning more about the Trust. Volunteering is a wonderful way to build new skills, meet like-minded people and make new friends. There are plenty of ways that you can volunteer with us; not all of our opportunities take place outdoors, so if you would like to support the Trust in other ways we would love to hear from you!
