Volunteer Awards 2018

Skip to section navigation

Our National Park Volunteers give their time, energy, skills and enthusiasm to help us conserve and enhance the country's 15 greatest assets and safeguard them for future generations to experience and enjoy. 

National Parks UK looks to recognize and reward the transformative action made by our dedicated National Park volunteers through our National Parks UK Volunteer Awards. Our winners all receive great prizes provided by Columbia Sportswear, and £1000 bursary is given to the group and project winners to help their volunteer work.
