National Insect Week returns in 2020

National Trust

National Trust

The National Trust protects – and opens to the public – over 350 historic houses, gardens and ancient monuments in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. In addition the Trust looks after forests, woods, fens, beaches, farmland, downs, moorland, islands, archaeological remains, castles, nature reserves and villages. It therefore plays a major role in wildlife habitat management as well as conservation of architectural heritage.
