Environment Champions

We are looking for a volunteer(s) to help us raise our knowledge of and focus on the Environment, as the Basingstoke Canal is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest along much of its length.

Accordingly protecting and enhancing the Environment is at the core of our planning for the future, for example promoting electric powered boats along the Canal and forging improved links to Natural England and the Environment Agency.

So, if you are passionate about this issue, and want to help guide and influence the Canal Society’s activities in this key area, then please get in touch. The role is likely to take up to say 3 hours a week and will involve liaising with Local and County Councils Environment teams, as well as Natural England and the Environment Agency.


  • Passionate about the environment
  • An interest in the Basingstoke Canal
  • Good communication skills
  • Good organisational skills

Please Note: We ask volunteers to become members of the Society as it enables them to receive regular updates along with membership providing insurance cover for volunteer activities.

  • DBS check required
  • Equal Opportunities Policy
  • Health and Safety Policy
  • Ongoing support
