Discovering its wildlife and wild places
In 2021, Herefordshire Biological Records Centre (HBRC) in partnership with Cultivating Learning and Nature CIC (CLaN CIC) received £98,900 from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
Thanks to National Lottery players, our project ‘Hidden Herefordshire: discovering its wildlife and wild places’ aims to connect Herefordshire people of all ages and from all backgrounds to recording wildlife wherever they are.
During the Covid-19 pandemic there has been a massive increase in people’s appreciation of nature, and of the resulting mental health benefits. The project aims to further encourage this interest within the wider community. Between 2021 and 2023 there will be loads of fun and engaging opportunities for the people of Herefordshire to get involved.
Once the project has ended there will be an improved understanding of the biological heritage of Herefordshire, and therefore better information in both a local and national context regarding how species and habitats are faring. The funding has also enabled the launch of a new HBRC website to allow promotion and coordination of the project’s events and activities, as well as further publicize our other work.
