Lowland wet grassland is one of the most important habitats in the Severn Vale

 

Inevitably increasing demand for food production has resulted in drainage of this valuable habitat over the decades.

We hope that by using the Living Landscape approach in the Severn Vale, that we will be able to start balancing agriculture and conservation to the benefit of both people and wildlife.

We have been working in Gloucestershire's Severn Vale since 2007 on ambitious plans to restore good quality wildlife habitat. The team is working with landowners and communities on restoration of lowland wet grassland and other wetland habitats which are so important for breeding waders and wintering ducks.
