What we are doing

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

Working to improve Ham Lands

Volunteers clearing scrub on Ham Lands 

Join us for our monthly practical conservation work. We are cutting back encroaching scrub to maintain open and sheltered grassland areas and open woodland which so important to support the rich biodiversity on Ham Lands. We also maintaining some of the small footpaths through the scrub that are in danger of being overgrown. Areas where this is necessary have been identified by local naturalists and the Council’s ecology officer. Tasks could include raking, cutting back, digging, and litter picking.

Guided Walks
