Discovering, Conserving and Enhancing our Special Natural Environment

Formed by local people for local people, Wild Roseland covers the five parishes of Gerrans, Philleigh, Ruan Lanihorne, St Just in Roseland and Veryan.

We are a group of volunteers who care about looking after our nature and helping others to discover and enjoy Wild Roseland.




Assess and monitor the special natural environment that we have on the Roseland to better understand, protect and conserve it.
Inspire visitors and local people to discover and enjoy the Roseland’s nature and biodiversity by providing information and other opportunities to learn more, for all.
Initiate conservation projects and activities to conserve and develop the Roseland’s habitats and natural environment; and to work with other organisations to complement their initiatives.

Idea of the Month

Blooming Marvellous

Why not plant a wildflower meadow or a small area of your garden with wildflowers.  With the decline of many insects in this country, any help we can provide will help them.  Some of you may not be keen to plant what most people categorise as weeds but weeds are only plants in the wrong place.  Have a look at some of the companies that are selling wildflower seeds and you will find that a lot of the plants are very pretty.

If you don’t want to plant a wildflower area for the bees and butterflies, then why not help with one of our projects.  We currently have two sites, a small lay-by area at Ruan Lanihorne and a larger area at Gwarak Gwel an Mor, Gerrans but we will shortly  be planting a third  large area at Veryan.  We are always looking for volunteers to help with the sowing and planting.  If you would like to help, then please contact Simon Perry who is leading the Pollinator Project at This email address is being protected from spambots.
