Stroud gardens are more welcoming for wildlife thanks to Stroud Town Rangers.
Families, with support from the Rangers, created bird boxes and bug houses from scraps of wood and transformed old plastic bottles into feeding stations.
It was one of the free workshops staged by the Town Council at its offices in London Road.
“Making space for nature in our own gardens really helps to give nature a helping hand and to increase our knowledge and love of all things wild,” said Mike Dando, Green Spaces manager.
“If we all do a little bit, we create niches, corridors and stepping stones for wildlife and in doing so bring nature closer which can reward us with some real joy.”
The workshop was part of the Garden Guardians scheme. Find out more on www.stroudnature.org/garden-guardians/.
