Our Neighbourhood Wildlife Corridors are where you can get involved to create a great space for wildlife in your garden or local green space. Creating even small features for wildlife that connect gardens to country parks and nature reserves is key in keeping our amphibian and reptile populations safe. To date we have engaged with 29,009 members of the local community through our Neighbourhood Wildlife Corridors.
We are excited to continue offering our developed app – The Wildlife Pond Visualiser and Wildlife Pond Ideazone – helping your garden become wildlife friendly! For more information- click here!
Our FREE Garden Guardians booklet is now available! The booklet can help you create a wildlife friendly neighbourhood in your garden and beyond. Complete several achievements from the book and earn your Guardian Sign to display in the garden and let everyone know you have Come Forth for Wildlife!
The Garden Guardians booklet is available for free at any of the Come Forth for Wildlife events – click here to see our upcoming events where you can pick up your free copy! You can also view the Garden Guardian booklet online for free by clicking the image below!
We were very busy throughout 2019-21 in our Falkirk Neighbourhood Wildlife Corridors with works to create new ponds, restore ponds and create terrestrial habitats across Falkirk Town Centre and Callendar Park, Middlefield, Grahamston and Hallglen and Glen Village. This includes restoration of the loch at Callendar Park – which is central to our corridor and pond creation at Hallglen Policy Bing and The Helix. In addition Come Forth for Wildlife ran numerous events in Falkirk during this time and continue to do so.
In 2021-22 Come Forth for Wildlife ran further activities in the Stirling neighbourhoods – Raploch, Cornton and Stirling – including the restoration of Raploch SUDS ponds, pond creation on a large scale at Kildean Wetlands and events and activities nearby. You can still help by becoming a Garden Guardian and making your garden or green space wildlife friendly.
Throughout 2022 / 2023 Tullibody will be our Neighbourhood Wildlife Corridor in Clackmannanshire – with events, workshops and connected habitat creation to come. We have delivered a Wildlife Gardening Workshop at Tullibody Community Garden and a Pond Doctor event at the Delph Pond Spring Event helping to give advice on pond creation which will lead to more wildlife ponds in nearby gardens. Local promotions were ongoing in 2022 to promote the free Garden Guardians booklet to Tullibody and let local people know what wildlife friendly features they can easily install in their gardens and green spaces!
