Thank you for supporting our parks and pollinators

A huge thank you to everyone who supported us by donating and spreading the word during the Big Give Green Match Fund. In just one week, you helped raise an amazing £6,215.

Your kind support means we can do even more in local parks – plant more wildflowers, trees and hedges, continue creating community growing spaces, and run fun, free nature activities. Thank you for championing nature and helping make our parks places where people and wildlife can flourish.

Connect with nature

Join us each month for seasonal activities in your local park. From mindfulness and crafts, to nature discovery and play – there’s something for everyone.

Discover dragonflies and damselflies

This month join us at our ‘Back to Nature’ activities to learn all about amazing dragonflies and damselflies. We invite you to come and chat with us by the ponds in local parks, to find out more about these interesting insects, and how you can create your own pond to welcome them into your garden or outdoor space.

The three chicks hatched at the end of May and are growing quickly! These chicks will be cared for in the nest by their parents while they grow, and will fledge after approximately 6 weeks.
