UCL Horse Riding Club helps The Royal Parks! 🌿

Join us for a one-off volunteering experience in Kensington Gardens! This would be a fantastic opportunity to get to know each other better while helping to manage one of London’s beautiful heathers.

When? 22/11/2019 9.30 am - 1.30 pm

Where? Kensington Garden Park office, W22UH

Who? This is the ideal opportunity for anyone with an interest in wildlife and nature conservation, open to anyone over the age of 18. Some experience in the use of gardening tools would be useful, but not essential.

What will you be doing? 

  • Pulling up or cutting saplings/young trees
  • Raking up leaf litter and grass thatch around the heather, and scarifying nearby grassland to encourage more seed germination
  • Cutting/pruning heather and collecting cuttings
  • Scattering heather seed / seed capsules to scarified areas and rake these in before removal of cut material.
