What will the project do?

By establishing and enhancing more wildflower-rich habitat for people and pollinators to enjoy along the B-Lines and Coast to Coast route in North East England, this project will improve the quality and connectivity of habitat corridors for pollinators, rare invertebrates and other wildlife.

The project will also deliver up to 10 engagement activities and undertake other pollinator friendly habitat work, like ornamental planting, fruit tree planting and bee hotel construction.

In addition, habitat management advice will be shared with a number of land owners to help improve sites for pollinators across the region.
