Join Us Doing Practical Nature Conservation Tasks

If you have an interest in nature or environmental conservationism, then volunteer with us on the first Sunday of any month doing practical conservation tasks in North East London’s largest open space, the Lea Valley Regional Park. We have done volunteering tasks from The East India Dock Basin on the Thames to Coppermill Fields in Waltham Abbey. These practical tasks range from woodland management, such as coppicing, the countryside skills of hedge laying and dead hedging to the removal of invasive vegetation with a traditional Bramble Bash.

Everybody(18+) is welcome to volunteer with LBCV doing hands-on practical conservation tasks in North East London, on the first Sunday of the month. No experience is needed; we provide the training and tools along with the tea, coffee and biscuits, bring your own packed lunch and water. Please wear suitable clothing for the weather and stout footwear. We will endeavour to do the planned task, no matter what the weather is doing; a task will only be changed if the weather makes it unsafe to do the planned work.
