Conservation projects

The Trust is working with partners across Hertfordshire and Middlesex to deliver projects that will improve habitats for wildlife and re-connect people with nature.

Our project work is designed to protect some of the most vulnerable and important habitats across the region. We also work to engage a wider audience with the natural world.

  • Our Living Rivers project is particularly focussed on threatened chalk streams
  • In South and East Hertfordshire we recently worked to improve woodland nature reserves and get people excited about them through our Woodlands for People and Wildlife project
  • Our project in the Colne Valley aimed to encourage more people to discover nature in Harefield, Rickmansworth and the surrounding area in the Colne Valley Regional Park
  • We've been working on our Wild Stevenage project to improve biodiversity and awareness across the town

The Hertfordshire Biodiversity Action Plan, written by the Trust in 2006, drives our work. It assessed the state of habitats across the county and identified priority habitats and species where conservation efforts should be focussed.
