PEA directly benefits both those who participate in our conservation projects and the landowners, whether public or private, large or small, on whose land those projects take place. Indirectly, the whole local community benefits from PEA's work to conserve, protect and improve the local environment. Our conservation leaders guide teams of participants in environmental projects including tree planting and care, beach cleans, citizen science surveys, wildlife identification, habitat creation, hedge-laying, meadow creation, pond management and much more. Our groups learn new skills, get outside and help their mental and physical health. Meanwhile, landowners (whether private individuals, national parks or local councils) benefit from the protection and improvement of their land. Overall, PEA's objective is to have a positive impact on the environment by connecting people with nature, teaching valuable skills and bringing people together to achieve conservation goals.


Our conservation projects bring together groups of willing participants to take part in conservation tasks in Plymouth and the surrounding areas. These include activities such as the following: - Hedgelaying - Pond creation and restoration - Meadow creation and management - Tree planting / care - Habitat creation and restoration - Beach cleans and surveys - Non-native invasive species clearance - Biological/ecological surveys
