What is the Severn B-Lines Project?
The Severn B-lines project, funded by the Defra Green Recovery Fund, aims to address pollinator declines in Shropshire, by creating a beautiful network of flower-rich habitats that are good for people and pollinators alike. The project is part of the UK-wide B-lines network and will see existing wildflower-rich habitats linked up via the restoration of species-rich grassland.
Buglife are working with Shropshire Wildlife Trust to deliver 20 hectares of wildflower-rich habitat creation and restoration across Shropshire, from near Whitchurch down to Bridgnorth. We are working with local councils, community groups, private landowners and other organisations taking in farmland, gardens and amenity grassland. Together, we will create a network of wildflower habitat which benefits pollinators and people that live in, work in and visit the area.
