Ips Wildlife Network coverClick on the cover image to download the new Ipswich Wildlife Network leaflet (PDF format – 3.2MB)

The leaflet includes a large map showing the network of nature reserves, parks and other green spaces and all the corridors connecting them, throughout Ipswich.

The leaflet also explains the purpose of a wildlife (or ecological) network and sets out how Greenways, Ipswich Wildlife Group and Ipswich Borough Council are going to maintain and improve the network – hopefully with your help!

If you would like any further details of the network or would like a printed copy of the leaflet, please contact us.
