The Wildlife Gardening Project has been set up to encourage people to garden with wildlife in mind. It is a Partnership based at the North Wales Wildlife Trust with members from the statutory, voluntary, academic and private sectors. We work with local communities, businesses, schools and other groups to create and enhance gardens that are attractive to both wildlife and people. The project implements local Biodiversity Action Plan for Gardens in North Wales.
