Harlow Biodiversity Partnership

Harlow Biodiversity Partnership is an independent group working to conserve Harlow's biodiversity and facilitated by Harlow Council. Anyone is welcome to attend the meetings of the group, either as an individual or as a representative of a community organisation or local business. Their aim is to make a positive contribution to the conservation of our natural world and its biodiversity by sharing information and ideas. They take part in the Essex Biodiversity Action Plan process, promote participation in practical nature conservation projects, and guide Harlow Council policies.

Biodiversity is the variety of all living things; it is part of our natural Heritage and we need to conserve it now. A Biodiversity Action Plan is being put together at both National and Local levels, and the recently published Essex Biodiversity Action Plan has set targets for the protection of species and habitats in Harlow.

Harlow Conservation Volunteers carry out practical conservation projects to achieve the aims of the Biodiversity Action Plan.

How can I get involved?

Harlow Biodiversity Partnership hold meetings three times a year in the Conservation Centre at Parndon Wood Nature Reserve. Please bring your ideas to the meeting and tell anyone else who you know who may wish to come along too.
