Badock's Wood is a living habitat for wildlife and after several years our much loved sculptures like our green man, are being reclaimed by nature. We would love to provide new wildlife and woodland inspired sculptures and benches for everyone to enjoy, We also need to refurbish steps and other valued areas of Badock's Wood.
Friends of Badock's Wood was set up by local community members to enhance Badock's Wood in North Bristol and we continue to do so more than 20 years later. But loving this hidden haven for wildlife is not enough. We want to continue to look after it and provide exciting and interesting nature and environment information, activities and fantastic sculptures for everyone to enjoy. Our project plans can be seen here http://www.fobw.org.uk/projects.php
Badock's Wood is a public open space - open freely to the public 24/7. It lies between Southmead, Westbury on Trym and Henleaze. From a neglected site in the late 1990s the local community, working with local organisations and the City Council, turned this space into a wonderful local nature reserve and we continue to work to help manage the site for people and wildlife.
No matter how much or how little you can donate it will be spent on Badock's Wood. Thank you.
Friends of Badock's Wood does not charge for membership nor have any paid officers. We are all volunteers working together for the woodland, meadows and rivers of Badock's Wood and its wildlife and community.
