Volunteering is at the heart of the work of the Penwith Landscape Partnership.
Many of our projects include opportunities for volunteer work, so do please get in touch if you can spare some time to support our work. Our volunteer group sessions are currently suspended in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. We aim to reintroduce sessions as soon as possible. You can still register as a volunteer and be one of the first to hear as soon as the sessions restart. The work our volunteers undertake includes:
Clearing vegetation from footpaths and ancient sites
Surveying archaeological remains in Penwith
Repairing Cornish hedges
Identifying and recording flora and fauna
Repairing and replacing stiles and gates
Recording important local heritage features in the landscape
Removing invasive species of plants
Historical research into ancient sites
If you are interested in volunteering and helping the Penwith landscape, please complete our volunteer registration form. You can also read about the experiences of some of our current volunteers.
We have a number of documents of interest to volunteers including our handbook- you can view and download these here.
We also offer regular training courses for our volunteers - details of the courses will be announced on our events page and our social media channels.
The lead partner for our two volunteering focussed projects are the Cornwall AONB. You can read more about our People and Communities projects here.
