Tamar Community Trust Volunteers

New volunteers are always wanted!

The 25km’s of the Tamar Trails are looked after by an amazing small team of volunteers, who are part of the Tamar Community Trust. The Trust is dedicated to managing and maintaining the natural environment, allowing the public access to remote and hidden corners of the landscape whilst protecting the ecology and biodiversity of the area.

The Trusts states:

In the last 30 years the Valley has experienced rapid changes in the ownership and management of land, and has impacted both upon the landscape of the area and its soio-economic structure.

The Trust will promote, inform and provide high quality environmental and landscape management in both the Tamar Valley AONB and the surrounding areas.

Tamar Community TrustIn taking on this role, the Trust’s activities will directly contribute to:

  • Supporting the AONB Partnership and team
  • Delivery of some of the AONB Management Plan’s targets
  • Landscape enhancement
  • Improved biodiversity
  • Regeneration of a landscape economy
  • Communities that are connected to their landscape
  • An economic base for the Trust’s activities that is not dependent upon grants
  • Job creation
  • Training

 

The Tamar Community Trust is indebted to volunteers who enable and support all the projects undertaken by the Trust.  Groups of volunteers complete a variety of tasks from clearing new trails, building bridges, erecting signs to maintaining existing projects. Many projects enlist skills that you may already have, and that you may be able to pass on to other volunteers. Otherwise, there is always plenty of opportunity to learn new skills!
