Adopt a Park school programme

​What Adopt a Park is about

This is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn about their local park and its habitats, get out of the classroom and do something good for the community and the environment.

We can tailor the programme to suit your students' needs. You can get involved as part of a class, environmental group or a whole school.

Activities can include:

  • tree planting and mulching
  • pest monitoring and control
  • weeding (plant pest removal)
  • litter collection
  • monitoring wildlife
  • reporting issues in the park
  • stream monitoring and care.

We will provide resources for all activities and run educational sessions on request.

If your school would like to know more about taking part in this programme, email us on
