How Green is My Alley? Recording Pack
As part of the 2015 Bristol European Green Capital initiative, we organised a survey of Bristol’s alleys. Alleys provide a habitat for a surprising variety of wildlife, often in areas where wildlife habitats are rare.

Be aware - this is a large file which will take some time to download.

There are different recording sheets for schools and individuals, so you may wish to choose which pages to print.
Or contact us and we will send you a survey pack.
All the data gathered will be incorporated into our databases.
