Thank you for taking part in Love your Burial Ground Week

Over 450 activities and events took place across England and Wales

This year (5th June-13th June 2021) saw a new initiative where we partnered with the Church in Wales, the Church of England and A Rocha to encourage churches to use the week as a springboard to start recording the wildlife within their churchyards. We called thisChurches Count on Nature‘. And what a fabulous response we had! Please see below for a taster of what groups got up to.


For a list of events that were submitted in time please pop here.

Records are now coming in at great pace. There is no deadline to send them in. When you are ready there are various ways of sending them to us as listed here: https://www.caringforgodsacre.org.uk/get-involved/recording-2/share-your-records/

We would love this to be the beginning of more people sending in wildlife records during the whole year.

What is blooming and living in burial grounds in September will be different to what was found in June!
