Join Us As a Volunteer
All sorts of people have joined us as volunteers and, for whatever reason, they find it a varied and rewarding experience by becoming part of a friendly and dedicated team.
WHAT YOU GET
WHAT WE NEED
BELLEVER CONSERVATION WORK PARTIES and pony CHECKERS
Volunteers are needed for our regular Bellever conservation work parties and to walk the perimeter to ensure security and safety for the herd as well as herd monitoring to assist the Warden.
Our wonderful team of conservation volunteers on Bellever carry out a range of work to protect our moorland site, encouraging biodiversity and managing our treasured archaeology.
The team also maintain the stone wall boundary and non-native species of trees that spread onto the moorland so there is always plenty to do. If you would like to find out more about volunteering with us at Bellever, please email email@example.com or telephone 01626 833234 to have a chat and find out more. We look forward to seeing you soon!
DPHT EDUCATION & VISITOR CENTRE – NATIONAL TRUST PARKE ESTATE, BOVEY TRACEY
Join us at our headquarters and purpose built, bespoke heritage centre, open to the public on selected days throughout the year. We hold events, courses and open days so if you are interested in getting involved, please contact us as below. We have a number of feral ponies brought in on a regular basis for starter handling and taming, which are then returned to their respective farms whilst good equine homes are sought for them. We have a feral pony handling expert but really do need help with care such as skipping out, feeding hay and replenishing water, alongside deep clean between sessions.
We are always looking for well-rounded individuals with an interest in the Dartmoor Pony Heritage Trust to carry forward our strategic plan.
If you’re interested in volunteering with us and would like to find out more, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01626 833234. We look forward to meeting you soon!
As well as helping the vital work of the Dartmoor Pony Heritage Trust when you volunteer with us, you can also learn valuable new skills that can help you in your professional and personal life; some of our volunteers have picked up new skills like stone walling repair and pony training. How often do opportunities to learn new skills like these come up while making a difference too?
If your company offers volunteering days then please contact us too. We can offer group /team volunteering
