Nature & Parks

Working with the unique green spaces of south and west London is at the heart of what we do at Habitats & Heritage. We run projects that conserve and enhance habitats, help green-the-grey urban landscape, support community led initiatives such as friends of parks groups and enable and empower communities to make a difference in the places they care about

Urban greening

Urban greening helps combats air and noise pollution, soaks up rainwater, creates habitats for local wildlife, increases community cohesion and reduces anti-social behaviour. Find out how we are greening the grey of south and west London.
