An evening with Hedgehog Street

Join us on Tuesday for An Evening with Hedgehog Street, with free talks covering topics from hedgehog research and conservation, through to community action and engagement.

BHPS turns 40!

Just before Hedgehog Awareness Week, on the 30th April, BHPS are celebrating their 40th birthday! The charity was founded back in 1982 by Major Adrian Coles MBE, and since then have been working to help and protect our native UK hedgehogs. This of course includes running Hedgehog Street with partners People’s Trust for Endangered Species! You can join in the celebrations on the 30th April by granting hoggy birthday wishes; hedgehog highways, supplementary food and water, wild corners, leaf piles and ditching pesticides.
