We are looking for adventurous 11-25 year olds to join Friends of Parks groups around Bristol to gain practical experience in conservation and land management.

We meet weekly to undertake conservation tasks across parks in Bristol this can include bramble bashing, tree popping, thinning shrubs,improving paths and building steps to make parks more accessible for everyone.

Each park in Bristol has a "Friends" group - a friendly groups of local volunteers who enjoy getting outside and working together to protect nature. We find it's great for our physical and mental health and we always have tea, coffee and biscuits too!

About Future Proof Parks - Bristol

Groundwork South is working in partnership with Bristol’s Friends of Park groups, to engage more young people aged 11-25 in their local parks. The project is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and is part of a national programme called Kick the Dust.

We are working with the National Youth Agency and Fields in Trust to provide training and mentoring for twelve Friends of Parks groups and young people between 2018-2021.

This year we are partnering with the Friends groups across Bristol. If your group would like to partner with us, please email amy.walsh@groundwork.org.uk for more information.
