The Wednesday and Saturday Practical Volunteer Days have now finished for the season and will start up again in September 2022. All our habitat management work takes place in the autumn, winter and early spring to avoid disturbing wildlife. In late spring and summer, we allow the plants and trees to grow and flower, birds to nest and insects to emerge and complete their life cycles.
A huge thank you to all our wonderful volunteers who have helped manage the habitats this autumn and winter, as well as dealing with a large backlog of work due to Covid19 – it is very much appreciated. We hope all our volunteers will visit in the spring and summer to see the fruits of their labour and see the habitats come back to life.
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.
