The Countryside Ranger team works with everyone from international exchange groups, students, school children, local clubs and corporate groups throughout the year on a variety of volunteer programmes, tasks and events. From tree planting and wildlife surveys to boardwalk building and habitat creation, the team offers a range of opportunities for everyone to get involved in.


As part of the Country Park’s recent Heritage Lottery Fund grant, we will be developing and expanding our volunteer opportunities over the next 5 years. For more information on volunteering at Dean Castle Country Park, contact Jess, our Volunteer Development Coordinator on jessica.wharf@east-ayrshire.gov.uk
