Volunteering at GPEP
The Wednesday workdays finish on Wednesday 22nd May. They will start up again in the first week of September. A really big thank you to all our fantastic volunteers who help us manage the habitats in the Ecology Park - we couldn't do it without you!
Most of our habitat management takes place in the autumn and winter when flowers have set seed and birds are not nesting. If you would like to help out this autumn, you can go on our volunteer email list and we'll send you a reminder and more details before the workdays start up again. Contact Joanne Smith or Tony Day at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have also finished our weekend workdays and hope to start these up again in the autumn, so watch this space
TWO new volunteering opportunities at Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park!
ONE: Weekend conservation workdays
They happen every other Saturday and the last three dates are Saturday 4th May, then Saturday 18 th May and finally Saturday 1 st June.
Practical conservation tasks such as meadow and marsh cutting, digging and weeding shingle areas, coppicing (cutting willow tree stems), bramble pulling, fence making - no experience necessary. Just wear old clothes and strong footwear. Tools, gloves and tea, coffee and biscuits provided
You don't have to book - just turn up (unless there is a group of 4 people or more, in which case, please ring the wardens first).
TWO: We are also recruiting volunteer weekend urban wildlife rangers!
Funded by a grant from Awards for All, the Friends of Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park are proud to present an exciting new volunteering opportunity in Greenwich!
- Do you have an interest in gardening, parks, nature or wildlife?
- Do you have free time at weekends?
- Do you enjoy talking to people?
- Are you interested in free training, a free TCV fleece, excellent work experience or a bit of social networking?
As a volunteer ranger, you would commit to at least 2 days a month on Saturdays and/or Sundays, plus a minimum of 3 training days. After free guidance and training, you will meet and greet park visitors and help answer their questions about the park and its wildlife. You will also be helping to promote a brand new Urban Wildlife Code. Find out more about this scheme by ringing Joanne or Tony on 020 8293 1904 or emailing us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
