Grass Roots have been working in the Greater Belfast area for over 30 years, on well-known sites such as Minnowburn Beeches, Colin Glen and along the River Lagan, protecting habitats and improving access.  At times, we travel further afield, and we have worked on sites right across Northern Ireland.

We carry out all sorts of conservation tasks, from tree planting to drystone walling, digging ponds to wildlife surveys and fencing to hedge-laying.  Every year we are involved in Beachwatch, organised by the Marine Conservation Society, and we have social events through the year to enjoy the countryside we work in.

Grass Roots work fortnightly at the weekend; we would love you to join us.  Transport can be arranged.  See links at the left for our work programme.
