Friends of Ham Lands

FoHL_logo.pngWe are a group of volunteers that work with Richmond Council, local naturalists and other voluntary groups to preserve and enhance the natural habitats of Ham Lands.

We also provide information about the area so that more people can understand and appreciate this Local Nature Reserve.


We run volunteer sessions every Monday (1pm to 3pm) and on the second Saturday of each month (10am to 12pm).

The work that we do is described on the Volunteer Sessions page and the next sessions are listed in the HUG Events Calendar.
