Rutland Water Nature Reserve

Rutland Water Nature Reserve is our largest and most visited reserve. It is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, a European Special Protection Area and internationally recognised as a globally important wetland site (Ramsar).

Working indoors or outdoors, day-time or night-time, on the reserve or elsewhere, there are literally hundreds of people who contribute to the running of Rutland Water Nature Reserve - and derive enormous pleasure, satisfaction and fulfilment from doing so.

Volunteer Visitor Centre Assistants

Rutland Water Nature Reserve offers a great number of volunteering opportunities, undertaking practical nature conservation management tasks and assisting the Rutland Osprey Project.
