Creating a vibrant community hub

'Our People, Our Places' is our exciting new community engagement project. Over the next four years, we will be working to create a vibrant community hub centred around Bog Meadows Nature Reserve and neighbouring St. James Community Farm. 

The project will help strengthen social networks, develop skills and build community capacity by offering traineeships and a range of volunteering events and education programmes based around nature, conservation, animal husbandry and gardening, all thanks to the National Lottery Community Fund.

How to get involved


Would you like to help the team at Bog Meadows look after the nature reserve and its wildlife?  Or perhaps you would like to meet new people and learn new skills?  Or maybe you just want to get outdoors to improve your health and wellbeing?  Whatever the reason and no matter what your skills, interests or availability are, the ‘Our People, Our Places’ project has volunteering opportunities for all.

If you are interested in volunteering at Bog Meadows Nature Reserve, please contact Deborah McLaughlin, Bog Meadows Community Engagement Officer


There will be an annual programme of events - please check back in January for the calendar of events for 2021, or keep an eye on Facebook or Twitter
