Promoting and enhancing what is most valuable about the nature of the Sid Valley.

Bringing interested people together.

The Sid Valley Biodiversity Group brings together people from several of the valley’s community groups to pool ideas and expertise about how to promote and enhance the wonderful natural wealth of the valley.

Plant Life

The valley is blessed with a wide range of plant communities, from the algae (seaweeds) on Chit Rocks, to the wild flowers at the foot of the 500 km of agricultural hedge, to the mature trees in the parks and gardens.

Animal Life

The various plant communities support an amazing wealth of creatures, from the protozoan communities in the River Sid, to the insects that crawl and fly everywhere, to the birds that sing in the trees, to the shy Roe Deer that leap over the hedges.
