The Nature’s Stepping Stones Project is working with landowners to restore grassland, heathland and wetland on privately owned land. Sites of Importance for Nature Conservation (SINCs) are often very small but are important fragments of habitat which help to enable our wildlife to thrive around the edges of the New Forest.
The Better Boundaries project involves working with landowners within the New Forest National Park in the western escarpment (Godshill to North Gorley and across to Linwood) to restore linear habitat features across the landscape, mainly hedgerows in order to increase habitat connectivity.
In this first winter of the projects Nature’s Stepping Stones are running four volunteer scrub bashing days as part of the Nature’s Stepping Stones project to help landowners clear scrub in order to restore lost grassland.
