Lingfield Nature Reserves Association
Connecting with nature is proven to support wellbeing, so we want to run BioBlitz events to encourage as many people as possible to engage with the amazing habitats and species within the reserve.

About this cause
Our group would like to encourage local people of all ages and abilities to enjoy the benefits of connecting with nature on the reserves. We are a community-led reserve run entirely by volunteers and we are always looking to involve more people in protecting and enhancing biodiversity in engaging and educational ways. We maintain a network of paths and seats between a variety of habitats.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Research has shown how important nature and our green spaces are to mental health and wellbeing. We intend to improve our use of social media to promote our BioBlitz and other events and to raise the profile of the reserves. We would like to connect with those still unaware of the wealth of habitats and species on the reserves, and the quiet, safe and accessible spaces provided there.
