Introducing our Community Champions - the people who join the OPAL network together.
The OPAL network encourages people to get back in touch with nature, by enabling them to explore and study their local environments.
Our success has been driven by the enthusiasm and commitment of the public – individuals who are passionate about what they do, and have an enthusiasm to share this with their community, especially in deprived areas.
The OPAL Community Champions scheme aims to acknowledge this contribution, to thank people for their efforts, and to act as an inspiration for others.
Over the next few weeks and months we'll be profiling our Community Champions who are nominated by OPAL's team of Community Scientists from across the UK.
