Volunteering in the Lee Valley Park
Lee Valley Regional Park Authority has a fantastic band of supporters who get involved in activities at a range of venues and open spaces within the Regional Park. These groups of people and individuals give up their free time to support the work of the park and undertake a variety of tasks.
Activities volunteers get involved in range from practical conservation work, looking after the animals at Lee Valley Park Farms, general site maintenance, helping at events to enhancing the visitor experience at our venues. Many have been involved with the park for years and continue to offer valuable support.
