As a Friend you will receive a membership number and badge entitling you to free entry, invitations to Friends of Elmley events, monthly e-newsletters and volunteering opportunities at Elmley. Annual membership is £30 per person and £40 for couples or families.

We receive no public funds from any source for the visitor facilities and all monies generated are held spent solely on maintenance of and improvements to visitor facilities at Elmley. Thank you for your continued support.

Volunteers are always welcome to help with conservation work, wardening, wildlife surveys counts and maintenance of the visitor facilities. Our regular group of volunteers meet on a Monday.   If you are unable to make a regular commitment we often hold one-off work parties, often at weekends.

We also offer residential volunteer placements, and are happy to host work experience placements and research projects.

Please contact us if you would like to get involved.
