Access for all

Three Rivers is lucky enough to enjoy a variety of diverse parks and open spaces. These are fantastic places for our local wildlife, trees and plants, whilst remaining accessible for us to see nature at its best.

park-ranger-services-4.jpgWe are also fortunate to be able to have a Park Ranger who can provide great opportunities for adult, children, schools or specialist audiences, to encounter these natural habitats, increasing the chance to experience Three Rivers natural heritage.

Conservation of Nature

park-ranger-services-5.jpgDamien Weller, our Park Ranger, is there to provide a key point of contact between the implementation of Three Rivers District Council’s Management Plans, our local community and visitors to our area.

Three Rivers District Council is not only responsible for the management of our parks and open spaces, we see ourselves as guardians who promote, conserve and enhance our natural heritage, for future generations.

Our natural environment supplies us with a wide range of benefits to our well being including providing clear air, productive soils and recreational opportunities.

Making sure that future generations can enjoy our natural resource inheritance as a healthy environment is as important to us as it is to our residents.

park-ranger-services-6.jpgDamien undertakes regular patrols to monitor survey and report on the wildlife, trees and plants, whilst taking time to talk to users of our parks.

If you are interested in how you can help protect and preserve our natural environment, why not come along to our ‘Count me in’ days or become a ‘Friend’ of your local open space. Click here for more details on Count me in or becoming a Friend of our parks.

Environmental Education

There is so much to see and do in our parks and open spaces and with such a variety of landscapes and wildlife on our doorstep, it’s easy to discover more about bio-diversity and the impact we can have on our natural environment.

park-ranger-services-7.jpgWe run lots of educational experiences for everyone to enjoy such as bird box building, bat walks, dawn chorus, bug hunts and wildlife walks.

Many of the activities that our Park Ranger hosts are free or subsidised, so that learning about the natural environment and wildlife habitats is accessible for all.

Our Park Ranger Service includes informal and formal educational activities, in line with the national curriculum, cover a variety of topics and include details of our natural and cultural heritage.

park-ranger-services-8.jpgSchool groups can come along and help out with conservation work, bio-diversity surveys or outdoor learning experiences. Everyone loves our bulb planting activities!

Alternatively, our Park Ranger can come into your school and help pupils to review and manage their natural habitats, and support Eco-Schools projects in your own school grounds.
