Hedgehogs, our favourite spikey mammal, are found in gardens and parks throughout the country.  Sadly, their numbers are decreasing, but Milton Keynes parks may be a good place for them to live!

Find out how your youth or adult community group can help make a difference to hedgehog conservation in Milton Keynes by getting involved in MKHogwatch our citizen science project! Your community group will receive everything you need to survey for hedgehogs in your nearest Parks Trust park.

These nocturnal animals can be tricky to spot, so you will learn how to record their footprints over a 5-night period to help The Parks Trust understand how hedgehogs use the parks. We can then work to make areas more welcoming for our prickly pals.
