Our regular Wednesday and Saturday conservation workdays are taking a break for the Christmas period.
The Wednesday workdays start up again on 9th January 2018, 10am to 3pm.
The Saturday workdays start up again on 12th January 2019, 11am to 2pm.
You can just turn up and try out a workday but you will need to fill in a volunteer welfare form the first time you volunteer. Ring Joanne Smith or Tony Day on 0208 293 1904 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries, to find out more or to visit the site beforehand. We can send you the form in advance via email if needed or you can pop in to the site any day we are open. We meet in the gatehouse (the wooden building by the river) at the start of each workday.
A Community Engagement Day gives corporate teams the opportunity to carry out practical conservation and environmental work to improve green spaces in their local community. At Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park, teams can help with some of our larger habitat management tasks, such as reed cutting, meadow cutting and shingle beach digging as well as unique tasks such as tern raft management and compost turning. This is a great opportunity for businesses to help maintain the park’s unique biodiversity, while fulfilling their team building aspirations. We can host teams of 10 to 20 people any time from September to April.
As a charity we are committed to full cost recovery and we will work together to your requirements and budgets.
Costs include; trained volunteer support officers to lead your day - great care is taken to ensure that all volunteers (new and long-serving) have a safe, inclusive and enjoyable experience, project planning and set-up costs, full risk assessment and insurance, provision of tools and safety equipment.
