Habitat surveyors wanted in Cheshire

This spring, The Meres and Mosses Landscape Partnership will be working to engage local communities in a project mapping habitats across the regions countryside.

Meres and Mosses LPS

The Meres & Mosses LPS is a DEFRA funded Nature Improvement Area (NIA) outlined in black and a Heritage Lottery funded scheme outlined in Red. This is one of the most important wetland landscapes in Britain, it is also an area of international significance.  Glacially formed meres and mosses support a mosaic of rare and threatened wetland ecology, layered on top of this is the human interaction within the landscape, which has resulted in the special heritage value of the Meres and Mosses. Local involvement is needed to protect this valuable resource for the future.
