Wild Penwith Hedge Survey

Penwith

Wild Penwith Hedge Survey:

Getting started

What makes Cornish hedges special?  They are founded on stone
boundaries, but the legislation to protect hedgerows nationally looks at
the number of trees and woodland species in a hedge, which is not an
appropriate method for our hedges.  The Wild Penwith Project aims to
raise awareness of  the historic, landscape and biodiversity value of
hedges in West Penwith, and to gather data on the range of species
associated with hedges so as to highlight the importance of these often
ancient structures.

BOOKING ESSENTIAL. Please join us in our survey of the wildlife and
history of the hedges in West Penwith. The Wild Penwith hedge project is
part of a national survey and will be ongoing throughout the Summer. If
you can spare a few hours a week then come along to this project launch
day to find out more.
