Getting Involved

How You Can Get Involved

Join the Trust: Contact us for details of membership. All members receive the Trust magazine, Wild Derbyshire, three times a year, together with The Wildlife Trusts’ award-winning national magazine, Natural World and information on events and activities throughout Derbyshire.

Take part in activities or visit the Whistlestop Countryside Centre: to find out what’s on, telephone 01629 580958.

Become a volunteer: Whatever you can do, we need you to help us in our work. From helping out at the offices or manning the shop at the Whistlestop Countryside Centre, to conservation work on reserves, volunteers are crucial to our work.

Volunteers are always welcome to join our weekend conservation work parties which take place at reserves around the county. Forthcoming work parties are included in our current events calendar. Please contact the Trust to ask for a copy.

The Midweek Volunteer Team works Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at reserves throughout the county. Work parties generally run from 10am to 4pm, and lifts are usually available from Matlock Bath or other points en route to the reserve. For more information call Kate Lemon on 01773 881188.

Make a donation: Maintaining nature reserves and providing resources for protecting wildlife costs. Your donation could make a real difference in our work to protect local wildlife. Send donations to us at the Belper office and even better contact us to find out how your donation can stretch further through Gift Aid, where we can reclaim tax you have already paid.

Help with surveys: Wildlife surveys are an important part of our work. They help us to identify which species are under threat and earmark areas where they are thriving and which need preserving. Contributing to a survey is easy – once you know which species we’re surveying you can look out for them and let us know where you’ve seen them and whether there were any obvious conservation threats in the area.

Become a corporate member: Many local businesses support the work of the Trust and receive a range of benefits from PR opportunities to staff and community involvement. You can support specific projects in areas of interest to your company or work across the county in the fight to protect wildlife for the future.

Planning Applications: You can help local wildlife by getting involved in the local planning process.
