South West London Environment Network
We are a charity helping people and organisations who protect and enhance the environment. We work in the London Boroughs of Richmond upon Thames, Kingston upon Thames and Hounslow.
We help environmental groups to start, operate, find volunteers, raise funds, get insured, share good practices and collaborate. Many of these groups help to manage parks or open spaces.
This year's free family event Springtime Safari is on Sunday May 1st from 1 - 4pm in Twickenham.
Join our special spring time Walks + Talks including Dawn Chorus, Bat and Tree Walks in Richmond green spaces.
If you need help with an environmental project see our Supporting environmental groups and Help for a group pages or email us. We are currently working to set up a new group with residents around Suffolk Road Recreation Ground, Barnes. Please email us for more information.
