Volunteer Walk Leaders

We are looking to develop and expand our guided walks offer to become more diverse and inclusive. Our programme is delivered by our wonderful team of walk leader volunteers, at a day and time of the week, and distance that suits them.

You may want to stop on your walk and do a bit of art, yoga, nature ID, mindfulness, watch the sunrise or sunset; learn about photography, history and heritage or conservation, or stop and take your shoes off! You might want to include a visit to one of our capital of cake cafes, take a ride on the steam railway, or take in some sculptures. You could take a dark skies lantern walk, or help at one of our mass walks, or lead a family themed walk. The possibilities are endless as we engage people with all the special qualities the National Park has to offer.

And don’t worry you don’t need to have all the skills and knowledge yourself as we can partner you up with someone who does. You can stay as a back-up for as long as you need until you’re confident to lead.

For an informal discussion about the role, please contact Emma McKenzie,

Kiosk volunteers needed for Helmsley Walled Garden

Helmsley Walled Garden

We have lots of flexible options for volunteers to help with garden entry, sell plants and items from our shop and generally chat to and welcome our lovely visitors. Kiosk sessions are from 10am until 1pm or 1pm until 4.30pm Wednesday to Sunday. We welcome those who would like to do a regular slot or just be on call when needed – we have a great kiosk team but need just a bit more cover at this busy garden.
