Volunteer with Nature and Parks

Volunteers play a vital role in helping us to keep Plymouth's green spaces beautiful and exciting places to visit and to enhance the wildlife.

Individuals, schools and community groups can help in a huge number of ways from organising events to scrub clearance, tree planting, litter picking or path maintenance to name a few!

Volunteering is a great way to meet people, learn new skills and have fun while putting something back into your local community.

If you think you've a few hours to spare, why not give it a go!

Below are the different ways you can volunteer in Plymouth's parks and greenspaces, check them out and see which one best fits you. We look forward to seeing you soon.
