Events are a great way of raising the profile of your park or green space, getting people to join your group or campaign and consulting with people about their views or aspirations for the park or green space.
Successful events are a shop window for the work you do. Find out more about running a great community event here.
Much of the event organisation is about communication.
Ask people to send in photos of the park, from any period in its history, including recent events.
Wildlife activities are a great way to emphasise the wildlife in parks, to involve young people and adults and to educate people about the environment so they appreciate and respect it.
An A-Z of possibilities for events.
Permissions, insurance, licensing; there are several things you must take into account when planning your event.
Access and accessibility issues should play a part in the development of any park event.
Running a guided walk on the day of an event is a great opportunity to let people know about the park or green space, including its heritage, wildlife value or a new restoration project that is taking place.
Make sure you have the correct licensing in place before running your event.
It is important children are taught to respect all forms of plant and animal life.
