Bird walk and survey @ Northala Fields

Thanks to Gracie Grazina Muzikeviciene for organising!
I asked for help on EWG to organise a bird walk (survey) in Northolt- Northala fields. We’re very lucky to receive a help from an expert Neil Anderson!!!
Meeting by Coffee Shop at 8am on the 29th August (bank holiday – Monday).
Join us and let’s see what we can find in Northala fields, Northolt.
P.S. Hopefully we will do monthly Bird walk events in Northolt.

Volunteer Event and Open Day @ EWG@Costons Lane Nature Reserve
Sep 10 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Come join the next of our volunteer days where we’ll be working to get our new nature reserve in shape! We will be doing several different tasks over the coming months depending on the weather but tasks will include digging the wildlife garden, planting plants and trees, path maintenance, brush clearing, habitat creation etc. On the day bring wellies (seriously bring wellies) and thick gloves if you have them though we do have plenty to share. (also any forks and spades would be useful as well!) The entrance to the reserve is off Ruislip Rd across from the Lidl Car Park, we have a sign on the gate! Click here to see a map and public transport information.

About Us

Our ethos as an organisation is defined by the three C’s:

Have a look around our new website – we’re sharing details of our activities from the past and present, as well as opportunities for the future. Above all, we want to showcase what goes on behind the scenes at EWG. 

Community: 

We enjoy working with others and forging relationships with all stakeholders, groups and individuals working towards a common goal; the protection of our natural spaces and the life they contain

Conservation 

We aim to highlight and protect our flora and fauna, and the natural habitats we are lucky to have on our doorsteps in Ealing 

Collaboration

We aim to inspire, educate and foster new connections between local people, neighbourhoods and the natural world

We’re a friendly bunch and we’d love to see you at our events or at some of our volunteering opportunities. Check out our Events page to see what’s coming up.

The pandemic has been challenging for us, like everyone! But we’re slowly getting back to normal. Over the coming months we hope to get back to hosting volunteer days, educational and fun activities, community events and a few social get-togethers too. We will announce all upcoming opportunities here, in addition to social media. However, you should sign up for our newsletter too to make sure you don’t miss out! 

We don’t have a formal or paid membership list. Just join us on our very active Facebook group or follow us on InstagramTwitter and YouTube. Tag us too, #ealingwildlifegroup.

If you’d like to drop us a line, feel free to get in touch!
