Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park this week hosted a study day organised by the Countryside Management Association (CMA), giving people who work in conservation and land management the chance to learn more about urban wildlife sites.
Led by Tony Day and Joanne Smith of The Conservation Volunteers, who run the park on behalf of the Land Trust, the day covered the challenges and benefits for people and wildlife when creating an ecology park in a rapidly developing urban area.
The 10 participants enjoyed a tour of the park and informal sessions and presentations on a range of topics, including community involvement and creating nature sites as part of sustainable developments. They also discussed the impact of natural sites on health and wellbeing.
Tony said: “The day went really well. It was very interesting to meet people who work in the same field but who are facing different challenges at their sites – we learnt a lot from each other.”
