We are always finding new and exciting ways to ensure that the county’s wildlife has a home, and that is why we are working in partnership with Taunton Association for the Homeless to develop a community wildlife garden in the town - in the land behind Lisieux Way Methodist Church.

This July we held a bioblitz – a 24hour event, over two days, which gave people the chance to explore the coastline, and record all the incredible species living there. Find out about how it went, and how you can support our coastal research. 

We recognise that taking the time to enjoy nature has benefits to people’s health and wellbeing, so we are making it a priority to engage people with their local environment to reap the benefits of feeling happier and healthier. To take our plan forward, we have Jolyon Chesworth, our new Health and Wellbeing Manager – a new position for the Trust.
