Volunteering at our Nature Sites

Groundwork Greater Manchester manage five nature sites across the city region; Roch Valley, Irkside Nature Reserve, Boarshaw Clough (all in Rochdale), Summit Nature Reserve (Littleborough) and Trafford Ecology Park (Stretford).

Predominantly, these sites are maintained by our in-house team and corporate volunteers. Individual volunteering opportunities at these sites are limited due to staff resource.

From time to time we partner with nearby ‘Friends Of’ groups to support ecological work in the nature sites. These groups include:

Throughout 2021, as part of our Co-op Space to Connect project, we are looking to establish a Friends Of Boarshaw Clough group. If you are interested in join the group please contact julie.thornton@groundwork.org.uk
