Redbridge has a wealth of open spaces, from local parks to country parks. All types of green spaces are important for wildlife and can contain a variety of habitats including woodland, hedgerows, grassland, streams, lakes and ponds. Nature conservation ensures that these areas are protected, preserved and carefully managed.
This helps to not only protect the ecology of the Borough but also gives local residents beautiful green areas which they can enjoy.
We are custodians of nature in the Borough, protecting and improving spaces for wildlife. We do this by:
- managing opens spaces for wildlife
- organising public events and school trips
- giving ecological advice to the Council
- projects that raise awareness, create or enhance habitat and engage the public
Volunteer Workdays and Events
Keeping the green spaces of Redbridge up and running is hard work, and could not be done without the help of our volunteers. From mulching young trees to cleaning ponds, there are loads of things to get stuck into. We run weekly volunteering sessions around the borough.
Or if you’re looking for events that are fun, good value (often free) and provide something different from the usual day out, then join us at one of our nature events. With a range of activities planned for all ages and abilities, there’s sure to be something to suit everyone.
