Chalk grassland is a unique, specialised and fragile habitat, important for its landscape and historical value, as well as for wildlife.
Protecting our precious chalk habitats in the North Chilterns
Chalkscapes is an exciting new partnership project designed to inspire people to understand, care for and take action for the precious chalk landscape of the North Chilterns. The project will deliver landscape-scale conservation and community engagement, giving urgent support to the wildlife, heritage and communities that face unprecedented and relentless levels of housing, infrastructure growth and environmental pressures.

Protecting our precious chalk habitats in the Central Chilterns
Chalk, Cherries and Chairs is an ambitious scheme, which aims to connect people to the wildlife and cultural heritage of the Central Chilterns. The scheme weaves together three principal themes – local wildlife, local heritage and local people – within 18 projects designed to engage people, celebrate the area, and protect and enhance the local landscape. We are working with farmers, partner organisations and dedicated volunteers to bring real change to the landscape and wildlife of the Central Chilterns.
