Volunteer with Avon Wildlife Trust

Volunteering is the one of the most effective ways for businesses to make a difference for wildlife and communities in the West of England.

Avon Wildlife Trust is the leading local wildlife charity working to secure a strong future for the natural environment and to inspire people. We provide meaningful experiences that bring your teams together and make a difference for local people, nature and wildlife.

The ‘My Wild Street’ collaboration with Burges Salmon is an example of how employees can work out in the community to deliver sustainable change and help to create a blue print for others.

“We were so delighted about working with Avon Wildlife Trust. Our ‘My Wild Street’ project resulted in 96 staff successfully collaborating on project management, problem solving and project delivery. Our staff integrated cross-teams to create an outcome that was really important for Avon Wildlife Trust’s mission: to protect nature and inspire people about the wildlife on their doorsteps.”

Fiona Nicol, Business Project Manager, Burges Salmon LLP

Avon Wildlife Trust offers a range of volunteering options from one day support on our community projects or nature reserves, to a collaboration with your business to design something specific within our My Wild City initiative - keeping your staff’s learning and development outcomes centre stage throughout the process.

We need your business’s support to help make Bristol a nature-rich city.
