Corporate Volunteering

We have been delighted to welcome so many corporate volunteer groups to the Park in the past year, all deriving such satisfaction and enjoyment from their time with us – and being of such huge benefit to the Park.

We are able to offer weekday work within the Animal and Garden Maintenance Departments, or within our education/conservation remit, with the additional benefit of time spent within one of Berkshire’s most beautiful wildlife parks and gardens.

Small, medium or large groups can be accommodated, and there is time at the end of the day(s) in which to explore the Park and ride on the miniature train!

The Education Building or the Beale Centre are available as a meeting place, and catering can be arranged at a reasonable cost. Groups may bring their own refreshments, if they wish. We recommend that each member of the group brings a bottle of water that can be re-filled on site.

We invite you to visit the Park, in advance, to carry out a risk assessment – and clothing, equipment requirements and a more detailed plan of the volunteering day(s) can be discussed at the same time.

Beale Park reserves the right to select appropriate tasks for volunteers, but examples are as follows:

Animal Department

Habitat maintenance/clearing and enclosure maintenance

Garden Maintenance Department

Horticultural work such as coppicing, weeding, planting, general garden maintenance, possibly renovation and project work. Physical work such as building projects, some construction and painting gates and fences
