Wilder Horsham District Volunteers

We offer  two volunteer roles - our survey volunteers, and our work party volunteers. Both roles are integral to supporting the development of the Nature Recovery Network, with the time and skills our volunteers offer enabling us to hugely increase the scale and impact of our on-the-ground delivery for nature recovery in the Horsham District.


Since creating our volunteer force in summer 2021, it has been wonderful to have so many local residents sign up and offer their time to the project.

We would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who has volunteered with us so far and to extend an invitation to all who wish to join us. We always love to welcome new faces!


Work Party Volunteering

Our work party volunteers help us carry out vital conservation tasks on privately or publicly owned land holdings within Horsham District, with the aim of improving land for wildlife to help nature’s recovery. The work we do is varied, with previous work parties including building leaky dams, hedgerow planting, and plastic tree guard collecting. To find out more about being a work party volunteer, please see the Volunteer Role Description WHD Work Parties.

Survey Volunteering

Our survey volunteers will help us survey various sites around Horsham for particular taxonomic groups, principally plants, butterflies (and other invertebrates), and birds. This will help generate a baseline for sites that are trying to improve for wildlife and help inform management changes to those sites. To find out more about being a survey volunteer, please see the Volunteer Role Description WHD Survey Volunteer.
