Local Nature Reserves
The Wild:LIFE Project
Help make your local green space a better place for people and wildlife
The Wild:LIFE Project is funded by Natural England through Access to Nature, as part of the Big Lottery Fund's Changing Spaces programme.
The project runs from January 2011 to October 2013 and will create North Warwickshire's first Local Nature Reserves at 4 Borough Council owned green spaces.
There are lots of chances for people to get involved with the project, both by deciding how their local site is developed and by taking part in activities. Our goal is to create sites which are used, managed and valued by the surrounding communities and which provide valuable habitats, increased biodiversity and learning opportunities.
Activities vary by site but include wild play, willow weaving, butterfly and bat walks, fun days and crafts. There will also be opportunities to take part in the practical conservation and improvement work which will transform the space into a Local Nature Reserve. The project will also deliver some activities specifically for young people with the chance for them to receive recognition for their achievements through the ASDAN Environment Award.

The Local Nature Reserve sites are:
- Kingsbury - Linear Park (off Coventry Road)
- Polesworth - Abbey Green Park (river Anker area)
- Coleshill - Cole End Park (area leading from the Children's Play area to the Park)
- New Arley - Dafferns Wood
