Since 1960, Cheshire has lost 99% of its wildflower meadows and we need everyone’s help to create more space for them. One of the best places for wildflowers are our road verges so it’s important to know what condition they are in. To help us find out more, we’ve launched a road verge citizen science project.
It’s simple – take a photograph of a road verge around Cheshire and send it in to us along with its location. Our experts will use your photos to help us identify suitable verges to plant wildflowers and protect those which are vital for wildlife.
Send your photos to us at https://www.cheshirewildlifetrust.org.uk/road-verge-submission-page
You can see our road verge map and how your photo is contributing to our work here.
You can find out more information about our Go Wild for Wildflowers campaign on our website here and read The Wildlife Trust report ‘Reversing the Decline of Insects’ here.
The Cheshire Wildlife Trust has the ambitious aim of getting 1 in 4 people engaged in nature across Cheshire by 2030. We’re hoping that you and your wider community may wish to get involved and help us spread the word to help bring our communities closer to nature.
