Conservation Volunteering

The Ecology Service offers the opportunity to help us carry out practical conservation work in Holland Park through conservation workdays every third Saturday of the month. Hundreds of hours of volunteer work have been given to improve our wildlife areas. Tasks range from meadow cutting, building dead-hedges, pond maintenance, building stag beetle loggeries, woodland management and more. The improvements link in with the priorities identified in the Local Biodiversity Action Plan.

If you are looking to get closer to nature, meet new people, learn new skills, help your C.V. or just get your hands dirty then why not join Holland Park Conservation Volunteers? No specialist skills are required, all that is needed is your enthusiasm and time.
