Support Trafford Ecology Park

Trafford Ecology Park is a recognised Site of Biological Importance, home to nationally protected species such as Great Crested Newts and Bee Orchids, based in the heart of heavily industrialised Trafford Park. Since restoration took place in 1988, Groundwork have worked hard to restore the site from a local industry tipping site back into a wildlife haven now used to train and educate the local community in the importance of green space and natural ecosystems.

Trafford Ecology Park relies on volunteers and funding to help ensure that this fantastic asset in the heart of an industrial estate remains a valuable green space resource for the local community.

It is widely known that the UK's green space is on the decline, without green space communities, environment, health, wellbeing and economy all suffer. Help save our natural resources and donate to Groundwork today. Without the support and voluntary work from local people and businesses, Trafford Ecology Park risks becoming neglected and derelict like it was over 25 years ago. Together, lets make tomorrow different.
