Forest of Feckenham - Worcestershire Wildlife Trust
restoration work will benefit the community
The Forest of Feckenham was once a rich mosaic of ancient woodlands, old pastures and hay meadows, hedgerows and wetlands.
This scheme will benefit various habitats including meadow, pasture, woodland, hedgerow, veteran trees, wetlands and floodplains.
The restoration work will also benefit the community through establishing recreational activities in the woodlands, such as cycle trails. Woodland and wetland habitat restoration will also provide valuable carbon capture and flood risk management benefits.
Initially, the scheme will run for five years and will focus on taking a landscape-scale approach to wetland, grassland and woodland conservation.
