Our gardens are havens for wildlife and with many of us confined to home it's a great opportunity to discover our fascinating and colourful garden inhabitants. No garden? Birds, butterflies and bees are still going about their daily rhythms- see what you can spot and hear from your window. Don’t forgot to look out for bats at dusk - pipistrelle bats are often seen in urban habitats.
There are lots of activities you can tackle at home from a spot of wildlife gardening, nature activities with the kids, carrying out a garden wildlife survey, to planning those projects which would really make a difference to wildlife in our gardens such as a creating a pond, bug or hedgehog house
Events in Your area
As well as educating, nature-themed events bring people together, provide inspiration and contact with the outdoors and above all are fun!
Awareness-raising and education relating to biodiversity issues is an important role of all involved in the conservation and enhancement of biodiversity. Biodiversity is a global issue but local messages are far more likely to resonate with people. Local plants and animals provide a familiar and relevant connection and provide a sense of place.
Challenge yourself-get out and discover nature in your area!
