Hedgerows key focus for 2017

March 17, 2017

Although it’s only just spring, parks are already thinking about this year’s David Bellamy Award scheme and what they’re going to do for the environment in 2017.

This year the scheme is having a special focus on hedgerows – highlighting the work that parks are doing to create beautiful hedge habitats that benefit hundreds of species, from dormice to butterflies. Parks are being asked to do their bit to boost the biodiversity of their hedgerows and win a hedge habitat badge for their efforts.

2017 is also the third year we’ve run our Honey Bee Friendly Park scheme with the British Beekeepers Association – hundreds of parks have already got involved and got planting to provide the forage crops that bees and other pollinators need to survive.

Other highlights for the year ahead include:

• Twitter is going strong – follow us @BellamyParks

• We’ve also got an Instagram Page (#bellamyparks) – why not use it to tag pictures of the wildlife you find on a Bellamy Park?

• We’re also promoting the RSPB’s Wild Challenge – this is an inspirational on-line resource of wildlife activities click here for details.

Here’s to the greenest year yet!
