Naturehood is coming to Tadpole Garden Village

Naturehood is a Heritage Lottery Funded community wildlife project led by Earthwatch Europe, in partnership with the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust. This project will focus on reversing the trend in wildlife decline by creating ‘Naturehoods’, where neighbours can work together to develop thriving networks of wildlife-rich spaces in gardens, on balconies, and in window boxes, that benefit both people and nature. 

Naturehood will encourage communities to create networks for butterflies, bees, hedgehogs, frogs and birds by making their own spaces more wildlife friendly and taking positive actions for wildlife. Participants will be able to learn more about the wildlife that is in their spaces through citizen science activities which will support vital research into what actions can have the greatest impact for wildlife in our towns and cities.

The initial phase of Naturehood will be delivered in parts of Oxford (Marston and Cowley) and Swindon (Tadpole Garden Village and Penhill), beginning in late March.

A launch event filled with family friendly wildlife themed activities in Tadpole Garden Village is planned for April.

 We need your help to ensure that the events and activities that we deliver under Naturehood are as relevant and accessible as possible to you, your family and your community, and we would be grateful if you could complete this short survey here.
