Landscape Partnership Scheme

Dartmoor National Park Authority is proud to host the team and be Lead Partner for the Moor than meets the eye Landscape Partnership Scheme.

With a diverse portfolio of community heritage and conservation projects on Dartmoor, the MTMTE Scheme is bringing people together to:

  • explore Dartmoor’s past
  • conserve or restore its wildlife and archaeological heritage
  • improve access and understanding of the moor for the local communities and visitors to the area, and
  • develop and share the skills required to look after it for future generations.

The projects are scheduled to be completed within 5 years by August 2019 and offer a diverse range of volunteering and training opportunities.
