CHANGING CHALK

The Railway Land Wildlife Trust is delighted to be part of the Changing Chalk Partnership

Chalk grassland is a habitat under threat. The Changing Chalk partnership brings together 10 core partners, delivering 18 projects, working to protect and restore the Downs. This four-year, multi-partner project, is led by the National Trust and funded by a £2.23 million grant from The National Lottery Heritage Fund and People’s Postcode Lottery. 

 

The Changing Chalk project has three main themes to reverse chalk grassland decline and build a sustainable future for the Downs, which are:

1. Restoring Chalk Grassland biodiversity – practical conservation, monitoring, and
management.
2. Connecting Downs and Towns – engaging local communities with chalk grassland ecology
and history in multiple ways; supporting new and existing volunteer groups.
3. Hearts and Histories of the Downs – creating awareness of the history and legacy of this
landscape.
