Mammal Bioblitz: Make a Hedgehog House

A ranger will help you to create a home for hedgehogs in your garden.

  • Booking not needed

Do you have hedgehogs in your garden, or would you like to attract them? Hedgehogs need a warm, weatherproof place to sleep during the day and hibernate over winter. You can do your bit for nature by providing a cosy home, essential to their survival through the coldest months.

Part of a series of events and activities on the Yorkshire Coast to mark the Mammal Society's National Mammal Week, 21 - 29 October.
