I have over five years voluntary experience in Conservation and Countryside management but less work based experience. I have many years experience in the sector with Waste, Energy and other engagement projects but I would say the majority of my practical session delivery would be through working with Kingswood and in my current placement with Avon Wildlife Trust.
