Linking People with their Landscape

A three-year project is underway to link the communities of the Black Country with local wildlife sites, enabling them to discover and care for Local Nature Reserves and other natural greenspaces. The Black Country Living landscape Community Involvement Programme is led by the Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country and is promoting access, understanding, involvement and volunteering. The project aims to achieve lasting change by engaging local people with the transformation of the Black Country’s natural environment. Black Country Living Landscape Team Leader Julia Morris said “the Black Country has the potential to be a living, breathing, changing landscape of green and urban space; the active ownership of local communities is key to this”.
