As a charity, volunteers play an important part in the work we do, helping us with many different activities including scrub clearance, wildlife surveys and tree planting and meadow management. Conservation work is vital to the management of nature reserves, and the Fife Coastal Path, Fife Pilgrim Way, and Lomond Hills Regional Park. In total FCCT manage more than 60 sites. Fife’s open spaces play an important part in the health and wellbeing of local communities and visitors to Fife.
If you have a passion for the outdoors and the environment, why not get involved and join the many volunteers who help our team maintain Fife’s beautiful sites and countryside for everyone to enjoy. We are currently recruiting volunteers for our new Tree Warden Scheme.
Join our Conservation Team to help manage our Nature Reserves, coastal and inland walking routes.
Undertake active tasks such as:
Invasive species removal
The emphasis is for everyone to enjoy their time, in a safe environment, with an opportunity to learn new skills, whilst carrying out tasks that will directly enhance the sites and improve habitats.
Volunteer Fiona – I’ve volunteered with FCCT many, many times over the last few years, usually in the North East Fife area, and each time it has been such fun. Some of my activities have included planting native tree saplings, transplanting Marram and Lyme grasses to stabilise dunes, litter picking on the beach and even helping conduct a survey to gain feedback for the Trust’s future development. Every time I am outdoors with those wonderful and knowledgeable Conservation Officers, I develop new skills and have a great time helping to make a difference to our beautiful Kingdom. Meeting like-minded volunteers, having a laugh and enjoying being outdoors is great for the mind AND body. Thank you FCCT for the work you do!
Community groups can make a huge impact on their local area, FCCT are happy to work with groups who would like to make a difference in their area and help us care for Fife’s amazing outdoor spaces.
Community groups play an import part in making a difference, Plastic Free Dunfermline recently remove 80kg from a Dalgety Bay Beach, read more about their beach clean.
Many businesses and organisations chose to support the work of the Trust as part of their corporate social responsibility activities. Their staff are encouraged to take part in environmental activities and or to raise funds to help deliver conservation projects.
Businesses can also join out ‘Big Green Footprint Scheme’, membership of the Big Green Footprint Scheme demonstrates your organisation’s commitment to corporate social responsibility, members of the scheme can display the scheme logo, which helps demonstrate your green credentials to your customers and suppliers.
Optos from Dunfermline are a company which specialise in retinal imaging. They have volunteered for a number of projects including beach cleans and most recently to assist with meadow management at Birnie and Gaddon Lochs. We look forward to working with them on future projects.
