Ouseburn has an amazing variety of natural spaces for an urban area so close to the city centre. We have the river, woodlands, meadows, wild scrub, planted beds plus lots of other blue and green in-between, and our hope is for all of these spaces to be loved by people and by wildlife. 

What we do

Ouseburn Trust look after this mostly council owned land with the help of volunteers – individuals who come to our regular sessions, local organisations who look after particular spots, and businesses from around the North East who join us for work-days. We also work with the Council and organisations involved in nature conservation, community and health.
