We maintain many parks and open spaces across
Cornwall. Have a picnic, play cricket or go hiking through
the countryside or along the coastal path - there's a whole
host of activities for you to enjoy.
Cornwall has a great variety of habitats, all which are home to
different animals and plants. The special natural, cultural and
archaeological characteristics of our landscape should be highly
valued and must be protected.
Take care of your local environment, wildlife and landscape
- Not dropping litter or lighting fires, keeping to paths,
closing gates and keeping dogs on a lead when asked to do so
- Get to know your own area, find out what is locally important
to you and your community, and see how it can be celebrated and
- Value and protect local distinctiveness and diversity
- Plant a tree
- Build a small pond to attract wildlife such as frogs, newts,
toads and dragonflies. This will also reduce the number of pests in
- Attract wildlife to your garden by planting specific shrubs and
flowers e.g. buddleia bushes attract butterflies
- Set aside a corner of you garden for wild flowers. UK sourced
wild flower seeds can be bought from seed merchants.
- Don't leave litter on the beach - take it home with you.
There is a growing recognition of the need to protect the rich
variety of wildlife species and habitats - our biodiversity. This
is continually under threat from road building, intensive farming,
housing, retail and industrial developments and from pollution,
poor land management practices and over-exploitation.
