Wildlife Friendly Garden







Help local wildlife by making your garden

into a wildlife haven.

Open to households, schools & organisations,


Gardens are a haven for wildlife, providing valuable

food, water and shelter. They form green links across landscapes, allowing creatures to move between

patches of suitable habitat and linking urban areas

with the wider countryside.

We know that many of you already welcome wildlife

into your gardens now we want to celebrate

your good work and encourage others to do so.

It doesn't matter how big or small your garden, yard
