Join us to celebrate International Rivers Day on 27th September by visiting your local river. Take a stroll along the Little Ouse and enjoy the tranquility. Look out for the last remaining dragonflies hawking up and down the channel for insects, take in the autumnal colours and listen out for the characteristic plop of a Water Vole - if you stand quietly on one of the bridges you may be rewarded with a glimpse of one feeding.

Help us to support our fabulous fens, wonderful woodlands, glorious grasslands and splendid heathlands by sponsoring an acre today. LOHP manages about 200 acres across the Little Ouse valley, each acre costs about £120 a year to look after, which requires a regular income to do this (in addition to membership and project grants).
Can you give regular help? Anyone can get involved (even if you are not a member of LOHP), £120 a year is only £10 a month per acre to help us maintain and protect these important habitats and their wildlife for future generations to enjoy.
Sponsor an Acre (you can sponsor more than one acre if you would like to)

Flowers on New Fen

Back in February we were approached by a local film maker Alex Irven of Parish Lantern Films who wanted to try out some of his new equipment by filming LOHP volunteers at work. To thank us he offered to use the footage to make a short film to showcase LOHP.
He joined us on one of our Sunday volunteer work parties (before coronavirus) and filmed the volunteers at work, he spoke to Trustees and took shots of our sites. He then went away to edit his clips, including some wildlife from LOHP trail camera footage. We were presented with a fascinating short film about how LOHP began, what we are all about and how you can get involved.
