Volunteer for wildlife projects, archaeological surveys and outdoor activities within the stunning landscapes of the New Forest National Park.

People looking for new challenges and new friends are invited to the annual New Forest Volunteer Fair. Organised by the New Forest National Park Authority, the fair showcases a variety of stands and talks from local volunteer organisations on projects running in 2014. The exciting opportunities include:
  • Using laser mapping at archaeological sites from the Bronze Age to World War II on field surveys with the New Forest National Park Authority
  • Cataloguing and cleaning historic motoring objects at the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu
  • Scuba diving as part of a marine wildlife survey with the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust
  • Recording wildlife sightings to help create the first mammal atlas of the south-east
  • Supporting adventurous activities with the Hampshire Scouts.

Last year, 300 people from across Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire came to the fair to meet 30 different organisations such as the Forestry Commission, Hampshire Ornithological Society, The National Trust, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust, RPSB, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance, the New Forest Centre, Furzey Garden and Sir Harold Hillier Gardens.
