Derbyshire Wildlife Trust

The scheme will identify and survey the best examples of ancient pastures and meadows in the area and secure their long-term future by providing advice and support to landowners.

Derbyshire Wildlife Trust also aims to raise public awareness and understanding of the value of semi-natural grasslands, and the role that farming takes in sustaining them.

The scheme will demonstrate the link between conservation and the local economy by exploring ways in which grassland owners and graziers can economically benefit from more extensive management of their sites.
