We have a calendar that will show you details of the projects we run, when each workday is taking place and how to get in touch with the project leader.
Volunteering with the DPA
For details of all of our latest Conservation and Volunteering events please see the Events / Calendar page and click on the event that interests you.
Would you like to get involved? Volunteers are the life-blood of most charities and the DPA is no different. So much of the work we do towards preserving the unique nature of Dartmoor is done by volunteers and there is always more to do.
There’s a way to volunteer with the DPA to suit everyone, from joining in our conservation programme out on the moor to filling envelopes. It’s also a great chance to learn new skills, meet new people and find out more about Dartmoor.
Our most active volunteers tend to be members of the Association, but we always welcome help from non-members, both individuals and groups.
If you like to get out and see Dartmoor what better way to do it than with one of our friendly conservation groups. We work on a range of different sites throughout the year
tackling different seasonal tasks. You will learn more about Dartmoor, its history and the wildlife that lives here whilst helping to keep it special.
Other ways to volunteer
Whatever your skills and experience there will be a way to volunteer with the DPA. You don’t even have to make a regular commitment. We can often do with a spare pair of hands for a few hours in the office, manning our stand at a show or helping to spread the word about the DPA to a wider audience. We are also always looking for volunteers with expertise in fundraising, marketing or other specialist skills. To find out how even a few hours can help the DPA, please call us on 01822 890646 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Groups and businesses
A day out on Dartmoor helping with our conservation work is a great team-builder. It’s a chance to get out of your normal environment into the fresh air doing something active and worth-while. We welcome business and other groups joining in on our regular conservation workdays and we can often arrange additional dates for you. [Read more]
