Events

The Helford VMCA aims are to encourage people to become more involved with the marine environment and to work together to conserve it. This programme of events has been produced to help people to learn, understand and enjoy this very special place.

Here you’ll find details of the events, walks and activities that will be taking place around the Helford River this year. The programme offers a wide range of activities, from seashore exploration and special marine talks to bird-watching walks and a conservation cruise. All will help to show the watery wonders and mysterious marine world of the Helford River. There is something for all ages, abilities and interests and everyone is welcome.
