Our Stronghold for Nature recognises the national importance of the Forest of Dean for wildlife, and will provide fantastic opportunities for us all to learn about the plants and animals that make the Forest their home, as well as opportunities to help maintain and improve the forest’s habitats: waterways, ponds, mires, heathland and woodlands.
We originally produced this short film with the Wye Valley River Festival September 2020, updated in 2021, to celebrate and explain how our biodiversity project teams have made a real difference to our local wildlife and natural landscape. This is how we connect with nature…
Through eleven projects we helped safeguard our natural Forest and helped nature evolve with our changing climate. We provided skills, harnessed knowledge and enthusiasm to continue to maintain habitats and monitor the impact of change on target species through and beyond the life of our funded programme.
This work will continue, see how you can continue to get involved.
