Bringing the Pool back to life will require both coordinated strategy by environmental agencies and on-the-ground local action. If you would like to be part of that positive change and local action there are three main opportunities to volunteer:

Community Engagement and Communications Officer

This opportunity is hosted by the National Trust, Penrose. A flexible role, to develop community engagement projects and raise public awareness through social media communications. The role would be tailored to your particular interests and skills. An ideal position for students wishing to develop and employ research, communication and partnership working skills.

Wild Cober Volunteers

This opportunity is hosted by Cornwall Wildlife Trust. Its part of the successful Upstream Thinking Project to increase diversity, enhance water bodies, support responsible farming and protect archaeology. Useful and fulfilling tasks in a range of habitats according to the conservation year. An ideal opportunity for those interested in practical action, fresh air, fun and friends! Local travel expenses available.

Riverfly Project

The Riverfly Partnership is a network of organisations working together to protect water quality by monitoring the presence of certain indicator insect species. Cornwall Wildlife Trust host this opportunity locally. They are looking to build a team of community volunteers who carry out monthly samples as part of this work in Cornwall and we are keen to hear from new volunteers.

Volunteers required for practical activities around the pool

Following a successful volunteers day litter picking around the pool, volunteers are needed for more similar practical volunteering days over this coming year. More info can be found in the link below
