We host a variety of events at least once a month that range from talks by invited speakers to themed walks in the Valley or sometimes trips to local places of interest. Indoor talks take place in the village hall, Luxulyan. Our events are not only a chance to learn more about the Valley's history and nature, but an oportunity to socialise with fellow enthusiasts and like minded people. 

We also support our Valley ranger to manage the natural landscape through organised volunteer work parties.  

Unless otherwise stated, members attend events free of charge and non-members pay £2.00. Work parties are free volunteer days, open to all.
