Wild about Gardens Week (24 - 30 October 2016)
Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust are encouraging gardeners across the two counties to help bats this autumn, as part of the national Wild about Gardens Week.
The week is a joint initiative by the RHS and The Wildlife Trusts – and this year also involving Bat Conservation Trust – to encourage people to support local biodiversity in their gardens.
