The new Nature’s Gym programme is now available! There are a few new sites on there and a couple of favourites, so hopefully there is something for everyone. Please note that if you have not been before, have a read through our FAQ to see if this is the right project for you. Here you will also find out what you need to do to take part in one of our events. You can also have a look at the Nature’s Gym page where you will find a lot more information. If you still have questions about the project, please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to help.
A great way to get involved with the London Wildlife Trust in Lewisham is to become a conservation volunteer to make a real difference for wildlife in your local area, learn new skills and to gain a deeper understanding of woodland ecology. They have monthly conservation workdays at New Cross Gate Cutting on the following dates:
- Saturday 27th May
- Saturday 17th June
- Saturday 22nd July
- Saturday 19th August
- Saturday 23rd September

Hi all, unfortunately, we have had to change the location for tomorrow’s (2 March 2017) Nature’s Gym. Instead we shall be working at Lower Sydenham Station. Hopefully, we can go back to Belmont Park and finish our work there another time.
Please look for Lower Sydenham Station on this document for details of how to get there.
See you tomorrow.

Towards the end of October, volunteers with Nature’s Gym and the Friends of Hither Green Triangle worked in the Nature reserve between platforms 4 and 5 of Hither Green Station. This is a little known about and hidden away site, but is full of lots of interesting wildlife.
The Friends and volunteers have been working on this site for a long time and a lot of great work has been achieved. On this work day we worked with a local contractor to clear the bank near platform 5 so that commuters and other travellers can peep in to the site. They also did another huge litter pick – one of the on going problems of the site.
