Volunteering in parks

There are many opportunities to contribute to the upkeep of local parks and nature conservation sites.

Richmond's green gym

The Conservation Volunteers Green Gym is a volunteer group that allows participants to:

  • Learn new skills
  • Enjoy the great outdoors
  • Make new friends
  • Get fit

For more information about getting involved, see the flyer (pdf, 1.1 MB).

Habitats and Heritage

You can find more information on volunteering for conservation projects in Richmond through the Habitats and Heritage website.

Habitats and Heritage (H&H) can also assist groups who would like to organise their own environmental events such as litter picking. On their website you can find advise on how to organise such an event. There are also templates for writing your own risk assessment and other advice.

H&H also provide a comprehensive list of local organisations and a yearly calendar of volunteering activities within the borough.

Friends groups

Some of our parks have Friends groups. Check our individual parks pages to find a group near you.
