Ouseburn has wonderful woodlands, wild corners and green spaces, with paths and steps for everyone to enjoy the area. 

What can you do to support Ouseburn's green spaces?

  • Join our Clean Green Team! Enjoy fresh air and good company doing varied green space activities in the Ouseburn Valley - depending on current need and volunteers' enthusiasm - often cutting back hedges, clearing paths and steps, litter picking and other tasks to make the Valley look good. They typically meet on Saturday mornings and Wednesday evenings during the summer. You can attend as often as you like, there is no long-term commitment.
  • Pick and Mix Litter picks
  • Adopt a plot – look after an area or flower bed, keeping it litter free and improving it for people and wildlife. You could do this with friends, other volunteers or as a local business.
  • Help out local residents associations keep their green spaces tidy and welcoming.
  • Volunteer as a business or staff team for a day or half day team building in the fresh air making a difference to the local area
  • Lead walks to share your enthusiasm for nature in Ouseburn
  • Join our environment group that meets seasonally to exchange news and plan projects.
