What’s On

Find environmental events happening locally every week including talks, walks and ad-hoc volunteering or conservation work parties/days and gardening activities. Please contact the event organisers for further information. See this page for information on the different types/descriptions of volunteering in the environmental sector.

Use the ‘categories’ to select the type of activity i.e. ‘walks’ ‘conservation’ and the ‘tags’ for the specific themes i.e. ‘Great British Spring Clean Up (22 March – 23 April 2019), Love Parks Week , National City Park Week and ‘Friendly Parks for All‘, a programme of activities for people with dementia and their carers which runs throughout the year in Richmond upon Thames Borough.

May is National Walking Month and to encourage people to take advantage of the beautiful parks and walking routes in Richmond Borough, here are some great resources!

For environmental themed walks across the borough, please see our calendar below or check: Richmond Health Walks Walk This Way (discovery walks for families) – Walks by Friends of Richmond Park
