How to get involved with your local park or green space projects
Becoming a volunteer not only helps to protect and improve Peterborough’s Parks and Open Spaces and the many and varied habitats and associated species they contain, but also provides many personal benefits such as helping to keep fit and maintain an active healthy lifestyle, provides a great opportunity to meet new like-minded people, and can also be a way of gaining valuable experience for those looking to start a career in this sector.
Opportunities range from community gardening, species surveying such as looking for otters, caring for nature reserves, habitat management, plant identification and GPS mapping, to running Wildlife Watch groups which enable young people to discover and explore their local environment. There are also opportunities to make good use of your organisational, IT, administrative or financial skills.
In Peterborough there are several organisations that provide volunteer opportunities including the following:
