Hedgehog Street

The Lancaster and Gurney Court Roads Wilderhood Watch Group officially launched its Hedgehog Street project on the 19th May 2019 as part of the St Albans Sustainability Festival 2019.

Hedgehog populations across the UK are in decline. As we get better at fencing our gardens, they lose their freedom to roam. The Hedgehog Street website is a fantastic source of information and resources.

Our Wilderhood Watch project involves:

  • Cutting 13x13cm holes in our garden fences to give hedgehogs much needed access between gardens, and ensuring that our gardens are hedgehog friendly
  • Building Hedgehog Houses

Please contact us if your neighbourhood is interested in running a similar project, or you’d like to find out more about ours!
