Stepping Stones to Nature

Stepping Stones to Nature is an exciting new project to get more Plymouth residents enjoying our parks and natural spaces in and around the city.

Plymouth has a huge range of natural spaces to enjoy. These include 26 County Wildlife Sites (CWS), 10 Local Nature Reserves (LNR), eight Sites of Special Interest (SSSI), 31 Parks and many other spaces for nature. Plymouth also borders three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), Dartmoor National Park and a European Marine Site.

Stepping Stones are planning to work with people who don't normally think of parks and green spaces in their local community when it comes to enjoyment, entertainment, health or a free day out. Bringing together expertise from public health, parks, protected landscapes, neighbourhood renewal, play, rights of way, and outdoor education we aim to create new ways of getting more people enjoying the benefits of good quality natural spaces.
