The Harpenden Family Conservation Day is run by Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust. They are a local charity supported by people who care about protecting wildlife and have over 22,000 members. They are the leading voice for wildlife conservation in Hertfordshire and Middlesex. With the help of all their wonderful volunteers, they manage a network of more than 40 nature reserves, covering over 1,900 acres. All completely natural resources to the people of St Albans and Harpenden who like to get out and about in nature.
The Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust also have a vision of what they call Living Landscape where neighbours work with others to improve towns and countryside for wildlife. They believe that just preserving species in tiny pockets of the landscape, on nature reserves, will not ensure wildlife's future survival. The vision must be wider than that. By creating spaces for wildlife to live in amongst houses, businesses, roads, railway lines and fields we can all move closer to our vision of an environment rich in wildlife for everyone.
Getting involved with the Harpenden Common Family Conservation Day will give you skills and knowledge to keep greening space for St Albans and Harpenden to flourish.
