Mission Information
Hedgerows play a important role in the lives of lots of different British wildlife. A good hedgerow can provide food, shelter and a way to travel safely. Over twenty species of butterfly use hedgerows as a place to breed and one of Britain's rarest mammals, the dormouse, depends on hedgerows for food and shelter throughout the seasons.

Cycle Closer to Nature is supported by Arla's Kids Closer to Nature campaign and Sustrans. Search for this location on the National Cycle Network here.

Mission Risk: Low
Low. This should be easy but take care.Take care when exploring the hedgerow not to sting yourself on nettles or poke your eyes out on a scratchy tree. Don't bother the wildlife - you're there to observe not disturb!
