Training & Volunteers

Volunteers contribute so much to the conservation and enhancement of the National Park.  Over autumn and winter we will be running volunteer tasks helping to control, survey and monitor invasive species and we are always seeking new volunteers who can help support our health walks.

From time to time we will also be offering training courses such as first aid, path maintenance, woodland management, walk leader training, or pesticides PA1, PA6 and assessments.  Subscribe to our newsletter for up to date news about courses and events, and make sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook.



We are looking for Walk Leaders to help lead weekly walks in the National Park.

Walk in the Park in Callander, Balloch, Killin, Aberfoyle, Drymen and Arrochar offers free low level short walks in and around the town to encourage people to take gentle exercise and become healthier.

To enable the network of walks to grow, we are currently seeking more volunteers to assist with leading health walks particularly for our Drymen and Arrochar (new) groups. So if you like being outdoors, meeting new people, are enthusiastic and outgoing and keen to help others this could be the opportunity for you.

If you would like to become a Volunteer Walk Leader or get involved with our walk in the park project please contact Cathy Scott, Walk in the Park Coordinator on 01389727748.

To get involved with practical conservation tasks you can volunteer through the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park Authority, with RSPB Scotland or with Forestry Commission Scotland.  Alternatively simply get in touch and we will ensure you have the information you need to take part.
