Making Space for Nature – two events in Launceston NOTE CHANGE OF VENUE

Cornwall is in a climate and ecological emergency so we need to create healthier habitats everywhere for species to colonise, allowing natural systems to rebalance, which in turn will improve the lives of people.

European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) funding has been secured to invest in urban green spaces as part of the Making Space for Nature project. We will be working in Bodmin, Falmouth, Launceston, Liskeard, Newquay, Penryn and St. Austell.

The plan is to enhance spaces such as recreation grounds, parks, edges of sports fields, verges and closed churchyards to create havens for bees, butterflies, birds and hedgehogs. There will be wildflower meadows, ponds, hedges, trees, pollinator shrubs and bulbs to brighten up selected areas.
