Volunteer with LOHP

LOHP relies on the enthusiasm and diverse skills of local people for its success. Although we use contractors for larger management tasks. New volunteers are always needed to spread the load and to help us achieve more for the wildlife, landscape and enjoyment of our valley. The time given by volunteers is doubly useful because much of it counts as 'in kind' contributions towards some of our larger projects; the monetary value of volunteer time is used to increase the size of grant we receive.
