Fill in public perception survey
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

Don't Mow, Let It Grow

Thanks Binevenagh & Coastal Lowlands Landscape Partnership Scheme for this post!Have a look at some of the wonderful wildflowers growing on the uncut verges of the Sea Coast Road in Bellarena around our office. Biodiversity will thrive if you give it a chance.

The Don't Mow, Let It Grow project across the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has had massive success in allowing our road verges and open grasslands to flourish - check out their FB page and website to see the results.
