Our regular Saturday volunteer sessions are running from Saturday 11th September 2021, from 10am to 1pm, but you must book a place in advance each week for the Saturday sessions by emailing email@example.com. Please read the other notes listed with each workday date for both the Saturday and Wednesday sessions.
For 6 weeks from Saturday 11th September to Saturday 16th October 2021, we will also be running Young Urban Ranger practical conservation sessions for 12 to 16 year olds from 2 to 3.30pm. These sessions must be booked in advance each week and a parent/carer permission form will be required – see more details in the listings below.
Employee Action Days
Employee Action Days 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.
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.
