Join our regular Wednesday and Saturday conservation workdays at the Ecology Park and help the wardens carry out vital management work in the park’s habitats. You will be working as part of a volunteer team with the park wardens carrying out tasks such as pond clearing, reed cutting, meadow cutting, coppicing willow, digging and weeding. The first time you volunteer, we will ask you to fill out a TCV Volunteer Welfare Form.
Our regular weekly Wednesday workdays at the Ecology Park start up again on Wednesday 13th September 2023 from 10am to 3pm and no pre-booking is needed.
Our Saturday practical conservation workdays will be every other Saturday starting on Saturday 16th September from 10am to 1pm. We may add some extra dates where we can, so keep an eye on the dates below. You need to pre-book a place in advance for each session by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
