Long Term Monitoring Network Volunteer Opportunities and Newsletters (LTMN008)

So how can you be involved?
Each year we try and run 4 in house vegetation surveys and we ask our Natural England staff and local volunteers to get involved. These surveys are a fantastic opportunity to network, learn about the LTMN project, the site and its management and of course brush up on those plant ID skills. Everyone taking part will receive a brief introductory or refresher training appropriate to their skill level. The real training happens in the field. You will spend 2-3 days in a mixed ability group surveying permanent quadrats, identifying every plant you find. These surveys will be advertised in April each year.

LTMN sites due for a vegetation survey in 2018:
Each year the LTMN team plan for a number of surveys to be done each year either through contracts or an in-house survey were we will ask for volunteers. Please note that we will be advertising the surveys that we are running in house in April each year where we will also tell you how to sign up. *
