Churchyard & Golf Course Management

There are thousands of churchyards and golf courses throughout the UK. These sites are often a haven for wildlife whether located in towns and villages or in the countryside.

Churchyards can provide refuges for a wide range of wildlife. This applies both in urban areas where they are surrounded by building and roads, and in rural areas where they can provide stepping stones in an intensively farmed countryside. 

Golf courses present a wide array of habitats, ranging from heathland and woodland to ponds, bare ground and grassland. Efficient management can create a diversity of wildlife-friendly micro-habitats, such as woodland edge, grass margins and habitat piles.
