Grebe House Wildlife Garden
Please note that the wildlife garden is currently closed due to essential maintenance.
Set in the beautiful Verulamium Park in St Albans, Grebe House Wildlife Garden is a haven for local wildlife next to the Trust's head office. The garden showcases many features of wildlife gardening that you can do in your own garden - from ponds to pollinator planting, there's lots to see!
Gardens are increasingly important spaces for wildlife as habitats in the wider countryside shrink and fragment, and climate change takes its toll. There are around 16 million gardens in the UK; the way they are managed can make a big difference to wildlife. Although each garden on its own may be small, together they form a patchwork linking green spaces in our towns with nature reserves and the wider countryside. Species like hedgehogs, sparrows and song thrushes are all declining, but if we manage our gardens sympathetically for wildlife these creatures and many more will feel the benefits.
