Big Green Weekend Open Day

Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park

23rd September 2018 : 11:00am to 15:00pm

A free open day with a host of activities to celebrate the work of TCV at the Ecology Park and discover how people help nature and nature helps people!

Free activities for all ages from child to adult, including Woodland Bling, a Detox Your Home workshop, frog habitat houses to paint, a Meet the Newts session and quiz trails.

Refreshments will be on sale and there will be a chance to find out more about the range of volunteering opportunities with TCV at the park, including our weekly conservation workdays.  We will also be launching our new Dementia Friendly Nature Walks and Activities on Sunday afternoons from 30th September.
