BTCV Scotland offers an exciting opportunity to gain a wealth of valuable experience and training as well as join the BTCV Scotland team as one of our Conservation Volunteers and learn practical conservation. Each office runs a programme of practical conservation projects, which run throughout the year. These involve undertaking a variety of tasks with the aim of increasing biodiversity and improving access to the countryside. These tasks could include tree planting, vegetation clearance etc.
