Creating spaces for people and planet

The Canterbury Campus is 300 acres of woodland, grassland, amenity areas and ponds. The Landscape and Grounds Team are responsible for its management, however, we all have a role in protecting this space and the wildlife that we share it with. Please take some time to explore the campus (Coming soon - nature trail information) and make a note of what you see. 

Quotation

It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty, the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.”

David Attenbourough

Quotation

For conservation to be sustainable it can't be just about doing the actual conservation work, but doing it in a way that works for people and communities."
