Nominations are open for the 2018 National Parks Volunteer Awards.
The awards recognise and thank some of the incredible volunteers who dedicate thousands of hours of service and effort every year helping to protect and improve Britain’s 15 national parks.
There are four categories – Individual, Young Person (25 years and under), Group and Project. The group and project winners will receive a £1,000 bursary towards their future volunteering efforts. The individual and young person winners will receive outdoor kit from UK National Parks partner Columbia Sportswear.
The awards recognise the hard work of volunteers deemed to have gone above and beyond the usual expectations of volunteer service. Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park has more 200 enthusiastic volunteers. Last
year they gave 15,000 hours of their time towards helping people to have great experiences in the park, enhancing and protecting habitats for wildlife and supporting community projects.
