We are working to increase Stevenage’s biodiversity by conserving, restoring, recreating and reconnecting wildlife habitats.

Protecting wildlife habitats

In June 2010 a Biodiversity Action Plan was launched. This five year plan links to the Hertfordshire Biodiversity Plan and set out actions that would help to protect and develop biodiversity across Stevenage.

The main habitat types found in Stevenage are:

  • woodland;
  • grassland;
  • ancient hedgerows;
  • wetland; and
  • neighbourhood nature such as gardens, allotments and buildings.

A total of 40 County Wildlife Sites have been identified including valuable locations for key species such as bats, great crested newts, badgers, and scarce flora.

Wildlife Trusts

The Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust offer plenty of opportunity to get out and about with lists of local nature reserves and events such as nature walks and photography workshops.

The Wildlife Trust provide guidance on creating and maintaining flowering pots and lawns, attracting butterflies to your garden and attracting bumblebees and making artificial bumblebee nest sites in your garden.
