‘Churchyards & Conservation’

Dorset Wildlife Trust

The national ‘Living Churchyards and Cemeteries’ scheme assists local communities to get involved in the management of their churchyards for the benefit of wildlife as well as the local congregation, visitors and the bereaved.  Churchyards have many habitats including grassland, walls, hedges and the gravestones themselves with rare or unusual lichen species. The Dorset scheme started in 1996 and now involves over 100 parishes. Our speaker will cover how the programme works and show examples of this sensitive form of conservation.
