Apply for an Award NYMA runs two award schemes which recognise contributions to conservation (natural or cultural).
The President’s Fund was set up in 2000 to support research which benefits the North York Moors. Applications are welcomed from local interest groups or individuals pursuing original research into the natural history, archaeology, history, or environment (natural or built) of the North York Moors. The results of the research should contribute to the body of knowledge on the National Park.
Previous winners include:
Fylingdale moorland birds study
Adders and their habitat research
Moorland peat and vegetation survey
Study of Barn Owl pellets
Win £500 for your conservation work!
We offer an annual award of £500 for conservation of the built or natural environment in the North York Moors National Park. The President’s Award alternates with the Conservation Award, a collaborative award scheme jointly funded with the National Park Authority. In 2017 it was the turn of the Conservation Award.
The Conservation Award for 2017 has now been made. Information on the 2018 President's Award will be posted here early in the year.
