Exciting new environmental charity seeks trustees

This is a fantastic opportunity to help run a new charity – the Cranborne Chase Landscape Trust (CCLT) – which is focused on conserving and enhancing the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).  If you are passionate about nature conservation; archaeology, landscape, environmental education, volunteering, land management, dark night skies or rural skills and trades this could be the perfect role for you.

 Current projects the Trust is involved with include helping to deliver a new visitor and interpretation centre for the Cranborne Chase AONB and supporting a conservation project to improve local habitats for the endangered Turtle Dove.

Why become a trustee? Trustees have a crucial and valuable role to play in the conservation and enhancement of an outstanding protected landscape and your skills and experience can help make a lasting difference. This is a great opportunity to find new interests, broaden your experience, and meet new people.

Time commitment for trustees The trustees meet approximately 6 times a year though some of these may be ‘virtual’ meetings by Skype or telephone. In addition Trustees may wish to attend AONB events or occasional training courses.
