The Nature’s Gym volunteers have had a great year. We have had over 550 volunteers coming to over 50 sessions. We have worked in over 20 of Lewisham’s Parks and Nature Reserves. This is £17407.50 worth of work (in relation to LLW) carried out by the Nature’s Gym volunteers alone!
Thank you to everyone that has joined us on one of our sessions in 2018 and we look forward to seeing you all in 2019!
The new Nature’s Gym programme for January – March 2019 is now available. We will be heading back to Chinbrook Allotments to carry on the good work we started there. We will also be heading back to a few favourites including Dacres Wood and Beckenham Place Park. We look forward to seeing you all there.
This maybe isn’t so much strange as unusual! She was found in one of the ponds in Sydenham Wells Park, but we are not sure who she is. Can anyone help? We don’t know how long she has been there or where she came from, but we put her back carefully the same day.
It might not look like much at the moment, but this is the new pond in Hither Green Triangle! Come the summer all of the coir rolls that were planted will grow up, and this will be an amazing haven for wildlife. We already know there is lots of life in this pond, we just hope that they will enjoy there new surroundings and that others will be encouraged to join them! Just of of shot on the right there is also a hibernaculum adding to the variety on creatures we may find there.
The Friends of Hither Green Triangle held a work day with Nature’s Gym at the weekend clearing the banks and helping improve the meadows. We all got very wet but this is such a wonderful site, nobody really minded. We plan to go back in the new year to carryout more work.
The October-December 2018 Nature’s Gym programme is now available. We are always keen to welcome new people, and so if you are keen to join us, please have a look through our Nature’s Gym pages and FAQ. Hopefully this will give you all the information you need to join. You can also find out a little more about the staff that run the sessions. If you have any other question about Nature’s Gym that are not answered here please email us.
Due to illness Nature’s Gym on Thursday 26 July will now be at Ladywell Fields. There will be a wade and some bankside management work. The session on Saturday 28th July remains the same. Please pass the message on.
