Volunteer - Earthwatch


Home » Support Us » Volunteer

There are many ways you can volunteer with Earthwatch. From planting trees to counting wildlife to monitoring water quality with your community, there’s something for everyone. 

Join an event

Help us plant a Tiny Forest in planting season or come along to a Tiny Forest science day and monitor wildlife or carbon storage. Learn more about our science and our programmes by joining a webinar. Connect with nature by taking part in a Naturehood event.

Become a Tree Keeper

Would you like to care for nature, connect with your local community and expand your skills?  

Become a Tiny Forest volunteer and join our thriving Tree Keeper volunteer network!  

Being a Tree Keeper volunteer is flexible, it’s up to you what activities you get involved in and how often.

Your tasks could include:

  • Maintenance (weeding and litter picking in your local Tiny Forest) 
  • Community engagement (inspire local people to get involved) 
  • Science (counting bugs and butterflies, measuring trees and more!) 

You can volunteer on your own or along with your fellow Tree Keepers. Earthwatch will support you with all the tools, training and resources you need to make your journey with your Tiny Forest an enjoyable one! 

If you would like to become a Tree Keeper, get in touch.

Take part in citizen science

Earthwatch is powered by science. The scientific data collected by people like you can spark change in our neighbourhoods and at the highest levels of government.

FreshWater Watch

Help scientists, organisations and governments understand how our fresh water and the life it supports is faring. 

Join an existing FreshWater Watch community group or set up your own, and monitor the water quality in your local river, lake or stream.

Take part in one of our upcoming WaterBlitz events.

Tiny Forest

Help us understand the benefits Tiny Forests are bringing to people and wildlife by doing science surveys at your local Tiny Forest. Find your nearest Tiny Forest using our map to get started. 

Learn how to do Tiny Forest surveys and get species identification guides here.

Take part in our annual Tiny Forest Wildlife Count during 18-26 May and Carbon Week in September.
