Volunteer Rangers

As a Volunteer Ranger you would be asked to patrol your local park or roaming patch to support our Community Ranger team, at any time that is suitable for you.  This is our most flexible volunteering role and can be done on your own, as a regular dog walker or with your family and/or friends.

We are looking for volunteers to take a walk or cycle around their local park or park of their choosing to carry out some simple checks, from stock watching to the occasional bit of litter picking. The location and size of the chosen park will impact on the patrol time, typically we expect between one and two hours for a general patrol.

The main idea of patrolling is to be the local eyes and ears of the parkland and report on the general condition of the site. We ask our rangers to let us know in their volunteer reports, or directly to the Volunteer Coordinator and the Community Ranger Team, if there is anything a visitor would not wish to see. This typically includes signs of damage, graffiti and/or wear and tear to parkland furniture and signs, water safety equipment plus incidents of fly tipping.  Our Volunteer Rangers perform a vital role in helping the Trust to keep the 6,000 acres of parkland safe and clean for all the users, visitors and residents of Milton Keynes.
