My Wild City

Havens for people and wildlife

Imagine a city where whole streets and communities get together to transform gardens and open spaces. From planting for pollinators in our gardens to influencing the space around us, we can all help to make a city better for people and wildlife.

How to make a nature-rich city

We're raising the profile of our Local Wildlife Sites and encouraging everyone to get involved in enjoying and caring for these special wild spaces.

With support from The National Lottery Heritage Fund, we're working over three years with Bristol City Council to focus on eight Local Wildlife Sites across the city, making improvements for wildlife and visitors.

A wildlife-rich Bath

We're working with residents and partners to improve neighbourhoods for nature and connect people with wildlife in Bath.

We've worked with the local community on Walcot Street to co-create wildlife-friendly shared spaces as part of the Wild Walcot project.

As a partner of the Bathscape project, we're committed to providing more opportunities for people to enhance the beautiful green heritage sites that surround the city. Wildlife sites like Newbridge Slopes and Browne’s Folly provide accessible places for urban communities to explore and enjoy local wildlife.
