Sevenoaks Living Landscapes

What is SOLL?

  • Festival of Wildlife

The Sevenoaks Living Landscape (SOLL) is a Kent Wildlife Trust initiative to increase the involvement of local people in wildlife conservation. Many of the large landowners in the area support wildlife conservation, but every garden is a possible haven for wildlife and we are here to help you make the best of it.
In the past couple of years, the group has worked hard to raise awareness of the importance of wildlife conservation in the countryside at large rather than just in protected areas. We have attended events and been written about (This is Kent). But we have also made a real difference by working with landowners, farmers and homeowners to create wildflower meadows, better-managed woodlands and roadside verges.  We have also launched a major initiative to encourage barn owls to thrive in our area. In the past year we have erected 10 barn owl boxes and are planning to install a similar number in the coming months.
