Wild About Gardens
Toad Patrol - Read our Report
With an estimated 24 million gardens in the UK, the way they are managed can make a big difference to local wildlife and habitats. If we manage our gardens for wildlife, these species and many more will feel the benefits.
The 2020 Wild About Gardens Awards will go live on 29th March. And, if you live in Cookham Rise, check out the new Let's BEE Friendly initiative.
The Toad Patrol's work has been done this season. Read the report on how it all went. The numbers were a little down on previous years of 236 rescued last year and 378 in the year before that. A concerning trend but one that only enhances the importance of the work we do – a female toad rescued to our local lake represents 4000-5000 eggs and a major contribution to the continuation of the local toad population.
Our Nature Reserve
We are delighted that we have now started work on the Harris Woodbridge Nature Reserve, our very own wild garden! We are now asking for your help.
Check for the next volunteer day and please join us.
