Iver Environment Centre is located on a 4.5 acre site in the beautiful Colne Valley between Uxbridge and Slough. The centre was established in 1990 as a partnership between Groundwork South Thames Valley and the National Grid.
Over the past 28 years, thanks to the help of local businesses and volunteers, it has blossomed into a beautiful site boasting many inspirational zones including a rainforest, orchard, woodland, raised ponds and allotments.
The centre offers a range of nature based education programmes for Primary School children. It runs assisted volunteering sessions for adults with special needs twice a week and it also hosts children's birthday parties at weekends.
