Get Involved


Take action for nature

The East Ayrshire Coalfield Environment Initiative is working with the community to enhance, conserve and promote the environment in East Ayrshire.

Get involved with the CEI through our volunteering, events and education programmes and help make a difference to the natural environment in your community.


We always need volunteers to support our projects, providing the opportunity to engage with the environment, improve health, and experience local wildlife. Find out more about volunteering opportunities and upcoming events.


We can assist schools and youth groups with environmental education, for example, leading classes about conservation and helping school eco-committees.


We also run a varied programme of community events, from environmental arts and crafts to citizen science wildlife surveys. Find out what events are coming up.

Our Projects

We work to create new and improved habitats with a high value for wildlife, including native woodland, farmland and wetlands. To find out more about our activities, please see our current and past projects.
