Help restore nature in Trafford Park

Years of manufacturing activity in Europe’s largest industrial estate has taken it’s toll on Trafford Park’s natural environment.

Your next corporate volunteering event could help to reverse some of these negative impacts; restoring natural beauty and improving biodiversity at Trafford Ecology Park and creating a better environment for workers in Trafford Park.

Our inspirational location is perfect for a day away from the emails; offering fresh air, exercise and exposure to a diverse range of wildlife.

Our Corporate Project Leads have a fantastic reputation and will work with you in advance of your event to ensure it meets all your needs.

All activities are fully risk assessed and participants are given full health and safety instructions.
