Thank you for supporting our parks and pollinators

A huge thank you to everyone who supported us by donating and spreading the word during the Big Give Green Match Fund. In just one week, you helped raise an amazing £6,215.

Your kind support means we can do even more in local parks – plant more wildflowers, trees and hedges, continue creating community growing spaces, and run fun, free nature activities. Thank you for championing nature and helping make our parks places where people and wildlife can flourish.

Connect with nature

Join us each month for seasonal activities in your local park. From mindfulness and crafts, to nature discovery and play – there’s something for everyone.

Three tawny owlets in a nest box

Watch our wildlife cameras

Our three tawny owlets have successfully fledged! The smallest left the nest on 30 April – just four weeks after they hatched.

They’ll stay near to the nesting box for the first few weeks whilst their parents continue to feed them. And they can’t yet fly – they’ll learn to do so over the coming weeks.

Tawny owls are powerful birds, with brown-grey feathers and rounded wings – a typical wingspan is up to one metre. They are nocturnal hunters and swoop down silently to catch and eat mice and voles and sometimes other birds, frogs and insects.
