Levengrove Park’s Community Engagement Ranger is on the hunt for volunteers with an interest in art or birdwatching to assist with a range of classes.

The new workshops which are set to begin in early 2019 include art for adults, art for children and families and various bird watching activities.

Three volunteers are being sought to give two hours of their time once every week.

Two of the volunteers would be required during daytime hours, while the third is needed for an evening class.

Volunteering for the art workshops would involve working with adults and children, teaching art techniques, helping participants with the correct use of art materials and organising activities for the class.

The birdwatching activities involve setting up surveys which will include identification of different types of bird species within the park, through sight and sound and recording information found.

The role will involve working with different members of the community, school groups, youth groups and carrying out nature activities at community events and fun days in the park.

All volunteers will be working alongside the Community Engagement Ranger.

Councillor Iain McLaren, Convener of Infrastructure, Regeneration and Economic Development said: “We are very proud of our parks and always looking at ways that we can improve the services on offer.

“If you have a passion for art or birdwatching, please get in touch.”

Councillor Marie McNair, Vice Convener of Infrastructure, Regeneration and Economic Development, added: “These are great opportunities to get involved with your community and give something back. I’m sure both the volunteers and the class participants will get something valuable from being involved.”

If you are interested in any of the volunteering opportunities available, please contact West Dunbartonshire Council’s Community Engagement Ranger, Sandra Anton, on 01389 772090 or Sandra.anton@west-dunbarton.gov.uk
