Cody Dock
One of London's most exciting creative spaces, Cody Dock provides a gateway to the Lea River Park and is home to a gallery, gardens, cafe & bar that make this the perfect pit stop for exploring The Line Sculpture trail and Lower Lea River.  We'd love to hear from any UCL students who'd like to volunteer with us.

Volunteer with us to help observe, monitor and record the biodiversity of Cody Dock and the surrounding area, while learning about protection of the natural environment!

Our environmental volunteers survey and monitor the local environment and ecology, helping to study the importance of the lower Lea valley. This helps us make informed decisions about our site development and gives us the tools we need to make appropriate interventions, such as creating new habitats and conserving existing ones.

Join us on an intertidal survey, monitor water quality, join a butterfly or bat walk, record bird species or just come and plant a couple of hundred trees!




Wildlife surveys (bird watching, insect walks, bat nights)
Habitat conservation and creation including tree planting, meadow restoration and waterway habitat protection
River safaris 
Community and river clean-ups
Environmental monitoring 

Who will the volunteers be working with?
With Gino, Biodiversity Officer

This organisation is one of our community partner organisations.

Like all volunteer recruiters we work with, they have signed up to our service standards, agreeing to abide by our policy on partnership working to keep you safe and supported whilst you volunteer.

You’ll never be out of pocket for volunteering through us – with in-London travel expenses to and from your volunteering guaranteed.

In addition, the team here at Students’ Union UCL Volunteering Service is here to support you throughout your volunteering journey – you can get in touch with us at any time.
