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

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 host 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.

We don’t have a formal or paid membership list. Just join us on our very active Facebook group and sign up for our newsletter.
