Can you help nurture nature on Stanmore Country Park?
We are recruiting a volunteer deputy warden

Stanmore Country Park is a lovely wild area situated only a stone's throw from Stanmore town centre. It is mainly covered by secondary woodland which nevertheless hosts eight species of fern as well as the uncommon white-letter hairstreak butterfly. There are also a number of open glades and meadows supporting a rich variety of grassland plants.

We are recruiting a volunteer deputy warden to help maintain Stanmore Country Park. You will work with the friendly, supportive, highly experienced and well respected volunteer warden team who have managed this site since 1992. We intend that the deputy warden will take over as chief warden in a few years time. Much of the time you will work outdoors in a unstressfull, lovely environment: walking over the site, species surveying and supervising working parties. You will also help to create a new management plan, attend management meetings, and work with contractors and graziers, and there is lots of scope for a person to bring or develop their own ideas.

There will be training opportunities to learn new skills such as first aid, brushcutter training and plant identification.

You will be part of a wider supportive network of wardens and other volunteers from other surrounding nature reserves and will be liaising with Harrow councilís biodiversity officer.
