  • Improving information for visitors in our countryside car parks
  • Hosting a cycling event in the Looe area for all abilities and ages

Grassland conservation

On Pencarrow and the Gribbin headlands, our work is aimed at restoring the important coastal grasslands. Rich in wildflowers and grasses these areas are important havens for wildlife and conservation.

Looking after footpaths

Across the South East Cornwall area our ranger team maintains over 30 miles of footpaths and rights of way. From building benches and cutting paths to replacing stiles with gates there’s always something to do.

Wildlife conservation and management

Throughout the year we monitor various species in the area including dormice, hornet robberflies, lichens and all sorts of lovely wildflowers. This monitoring enables us to identify trends and habitat management.
