Wild About Gardens Awards

This year we are introducing the

Wild About Gardens Award Scheme into our area

By entering your garden for a free Wild About Gardens Award in 2023 you will be making space for wildlife and helping us understand how local people are supporting wildlife, biodiversity and sustainability.

WHAT ARE THE WAGAS?

The WAGAs are a free to enter local awards scheme to encourage people to put wildlife at the heart of their gardening.

WHO CAN ENTER?

Anyone living in RBWM or surrounding areas with an outdoor space can enter the awards and do their bit for nature. Garden categories include balconies, courtyards, allotments, communal gardens (including schools, businesses or shared spaces) and private gardens of any size.

WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO?

Have a look at the checklist of 24 simple wildlife-friendly garden features – you may have some of these in your outdoor space already or could easily add one or two this year. When you’re ready and the competition is open complete in the free entry form.

Depending on how many features your outdoor space has, you could receive a bronze, silver or gold award for your space and know you are helping wildlife to thrive.

Every green space makes a difference for wildlife, providing food, shelter and a safe corridor for wildlife through our area. Your entry will help us understand where wildlife is supported and where it may need more help.
