Join the Wildlife Friendly Gardens Scheme

© P Crossman, K Dolbear and J Taylor

Be part of the growing movement of people who make a valuable contribution to conserving Dorset’s wildlife.  You don’t need to be an expert to make a difference.

There are 15 million gardens in the UK totalling an acreage greater than all our National Nature Reserves put together, so what you do in your garden MATTERS.

Large or small, your garden can provide a vital stepping stone for wildlife and be part of the patchwork of wildlife friendly areas linking towns and the countryside.
