Chilterns Chalk Streams Project
The Chilterns Chalk Streams Project is a partnership of agencies, organisations and volunteers, all committed to conserving our threatened chalk streams and the wildlife they hold.
The Chalk Streams Project aims to conserve and enhance all major chalk streams in the Chilterns AONB and to encourage enjoyment and understanding of them.
The Project achieves these aims by:
- Raising awareness of the importance of chalk streams and the need to conserve them
- Providing management advice on riverside management
- Practical conservation to improve the streams for wildlife
- Carrying out surveys to assess the quality of wildlife habitats and locate rare species
- Providing education resources for schools to help children understand the chalk stream environment
- Improving physical access to the streams where appropriate, and providing information about their special qualities
