Join thousands of others supporting British conservation and The Countryside Store’s hedge planting scheme.

Hedgerows offer an imperative wildlife corridor for Deer, Birds, Foxes, Badgers and many other mammals as well as protecting livestock, absorbing carbon dioxide and offering valuable protection against flooding.

Hedgerow planting often gets overlooked by tree planting schemes, but The Countryside Store believes they have just as much, if not more to offer within our countryside’s landscapes.

Let’s bring them back.

As a supporter, you will be sponsoring a sapling that will be planted by us at The Countryside Store.

Join thousands of others supporting Squirrels with our fantastic Squirrel starter pack.

Encourage squirrels to your garden with this hand built, squirrel/bird picnic bench offering hours of entertainment to wildlife watchers.

Why?

The population of UK red squirrels has fallen from a one-time high of 3.5 million to under 140,000 compared to an estimate of 2.5 million greys.

Red squirrels are now unfortunately an endangered species in the UK due to the loss of their woodland habitat and the introduction of the American grey.

Let’s bring them back.

Both red and grey squirrels have a part to play in our ecosystem with both species helping to distribute seeds. Red squirrels however are a particularly important asset in the regeneration of pine woodlands and forests. Red squirrels are specially adapted to hunt out pinecones and feed on the seeds found within. The grey squirrels tend to prefer broadleaf woodland where many other animals can do the job of spreading the seeds, such as birds and ground foraging mammals.

Included in your Squirrel starter pack is a wonderful Living Nature soft Red Squirrel toy, a squirrel picnic bench that allows your furry friend to sample the delights on offer while enjoying the view, a supporter’s certificate with the recipient’s name and the name you choose for your adopted soft Squirrel toy, a Red Squirrel factoid sheet pack with identification tips, how to encourage a Squirrels to your garden and how to support the growth of Red Squirrel numbers.

As a supporter, you will also receive a Countryside Store 2022 Calendar filled with inspirational countryside photographs.

Join thousands of others supporting British Birdlife with our fantastic Bird bundle.

Encourage Birds to your garden with a window watcher bird feeder.

Why?

Studies show that there has been a rapid reduction in our rural and urban songbird population over the last 50 years.

Wild birds (including songbirds) are bio-indicators, their population numbers are a good reflection of the general health of our wildlife in the wider countryside.

New house builds, habitat destruction, the rise in predator numbers, and vehicles are just a few factors that have a negative impact on our British bird population.

Let’s bring them back.

Simple gestures can make a huge difference to bird numbers. Regular feeding will not only encourage birds to your home but will allow positive population growth in your area.

Included in your British Bird bundle is a wonderful Living Nature soft Barn Owl toy, a supporter’s certificate with the recipient’s name and the name you choose for your adopted soft Barn Owl, a British Bird factoid pack with identification tips, how to encourage birds to your garden and how to support the growth of UK bird numbers.

Why?
