Together with our neighbours, families and friends, we can create wilder communities for nature's recovery.

Not only are wildlife-rich patches in urban environments vital stepping stones within the nature network, but they bring so many benefits to our health, wellbeing and joy.

Parks, allotments, school grounds and community spaces can all offer something for nature, and many of you have been getting together to make changes for wildlife in your villages, towns and cities.

No one knows your local community better than you, so we're here to help you connect with and be inspired by others making a difference in theirs.

Our vision for a wilder future is beautiful and vital:

We want great places to live that are good for people and good for wildlife.

We want nature to be normal, for children to grow up with wild green spaces to explore.

We want a deafening din, a cacophony of chiping, churring and buzzing.

Be inspired by others taking action

There are so many people and groups in our two counties, who have first hand experience of the opportunities, challenges and joy of organising wildlife activities in their neighbourhoods.

Whether you'd like to know more about adopting and looking after a hedgerow, how to get together with neighbours to install swift boxes and create a colony, or working with your local school to set up a wild area - there are brilliant people out there who've already done it and can share their experience.
