We are fundraising for a fabulous educational space to inspire children and adults about wildlife, conservation, the environment - connecting them with nature and the outdoors!
This space will help us deliver even more exciting and fun activities and be used to deliver environmental workshops, conservation skills training, offer volunteering opportunities and teacher training courses.
Fun activities already include pond dipping, moth trapping, wildlife walks, urban park ranger volunteer training, but this outdoor classroom will enable us to do even more!
As we are currently at full capacity, this outdoor classroom will mean we can free up our current small visitor centre building, so we can use it as a Visitor Centre and eventually a cafe too.
This means we can attract even more visitors to Greenwich Ecology Park, engage even more people with wildlife and the outdoors and be able to offer people a fantastic experience on our urban oasis!
We already have so much support and interest at Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park and it already plays a key role in the local community, being a hub for the community, providing opportunities for volunteers and offering educational opportunities.
By having a dedicated education and training facility, Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park will be able to offer even more opportunities for children, young people and adults to get back to nature, learn more about the environment in an urban setting and this all helps to increase social and health benefits and work experience.
Anyone donating to this project will be able to see it in action by visiting Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park. This outdoor classroom will be accessible for all, play a vital part in providing education about wildlife, the importance of urban wildlife centres and will be a great example of real sustainability in cities, showing what can be done to improve urban life, for people and wildlife.
For some children it's probably their first encounter with wildlife, so for them it's a really good educational place.
