Over the first five years of the OPAL project, more than half a million people from towns and cities up and down the country explored their local green spaces.
Many participants were carrying out a nature survey for the very first time and provided important data about biodiversity, including information about some places never sampled before by scientists.
The interim findings of these years were published in OPAL's Community Environment Report.
