How legacies are used

A legacy gift to Plantlife will be used to:

  • Protect the most threatened landscapes.
  • Save vulnerable wild plants and fungi and prevent common plants becoming scarce
  • Inspire in others a love of wild plants and nature

How your legacy can make a difference

A recent legacy has enabled Plantlife to acquire a two-acre extension to its Lugg Meadow nature reserve in Herefordshire, the largest example of a "Lammas Meadow" in the country. This sweeping expanse of floodplain supports important wild flowers like snakeshead fritillary and pepper saxifrage.

A gift could be used to rescue and restore endangered habitats through pioneering conservation work, or drive policy and positive action on wild plant conservation and global environmental threats. It could be used to safeguard more of our land as nature reserves, or to improve the floral richness and wildlife of the land we manage. It could enhance our work on public awareness and education or to fund research. Whatever it is used for, we will always keep our Legacy Promise to you.
