It will look at different ways of managing semi natural grasslands to show how small changes in management give big benefits to biodiversity and ecosystem services. A major outcome will be the production of a practical management toolkit, covering all aspects of this project that any organisation can use to show the benefits and implement similar improved operations in their management.
The project will identify trial verges and amenity grassland sites in order to:
  • - highlight and develop a range of management options
  • - assess biodiversity, ecosystem services and cost benefits of this alternative management
  • - train land managers and volunteers in management options, grassland selection, species identification, Invasive Alien Species and monitoring
  • - promote the benefits to wider public
