If you love Fylde’s parks and coastal areas, and would like to help preserve, protect and improve them while learning new skills and meeting new friends, why not register your interest in joining the Fylde Volunteer Ranger Service? 

We’re looking for enthusiastic people over 18 years of age and with an interest in the environment to work with our rangers, coastal patrol staff and fellow volunteers to make a positive contribution to the conservation and ecology of Fylde.  

Whether you want to undertake practical conservation work, survey some of the UK’s most protected species or work with the public in the delivery of events and environmental education, we have a volunteering opportunity to suit you.  

As a volunteer, you’ll receive training and develop transferable skills, meet like-minded people, and enjoy a sense of achievement in knowing that you’re really making a difference.  

Volunteer Ranger Peter spoke about his experiences: “I enjoy the camaraderie working as a member of the sand dunes conservation group. It’s great exercise in the fresh air and gives me a real sense of achievement when we complete a task.” 

Fellow Volunteer Ranger Jim agrees: “You can vary the time you spend with the group, and you can go at your own pace contributing to the team effort in the way you are most comfortable with. Collectively, you make good progress with tasks which have an impact 

Cllr Tommy Threlfall, Fylde Council’s Lead Member for Environment, said: “We consider volunteering to be a two-way process. Whilst the council and our environment benefit from the time and contribution of our volunteers, it’s equally important that our volunteers gain from their experience with us. If you have the time and motivation to commit to volunteering, we would love to hear from you.”
