Wildlife Garden closure

The Wildlife Garden is closed until early 2024 while we work on our landmark Urban Nature Project to create a welcoming, accessible and biologically diverse green space.

The Natural History Museum's Wildlife Garden is a green oasis in the middle of the city, home to over 3,000 plant and animal species.

Be part of the team responsible for managing this amazing garden and discover more about nature, gain confidence and practical skills in gardening for wildlife.

We welcome applications from everyone - diversity, inclusion and the feeling of belonging matter to us. The Wildlife Garden is a fun, social and educational environment in which our volunteers bring their creativity, individuality and uniqueness. 

This opportunity is open to anyone aged 18 and over. You do not need to have experience in science, gardening or ecology - all you need is curiosity, interest and time!
