Bay project connects with residents

AN EXCITING new project continues to give people in Morecambe Bay a chance to learn and engage with the coastal environment around them.

A Wealth of Wildlife Project aims to connect communities with the inland, coastal and marine environments through a series of initiatives that will increase access to the beautiful natural places between Fleetwood and Ulverston.

Led by the Lancashire Wildlife Trust and in partnership with Cumbria Wildlife Trust, this project will run family events, walks and training opportunities for everyone to engage, explore and experience the wildlife delights of Morecambe Bay.

Supported by Natural England through Access to Nature, as part of the Big Lottery Fund’s Changing Spaces programme, this project will also be working in partnership with many other organisations and will encourage a greater diversity of people to connect with wildlife.

Events include Prom Art, art with a sea view with the Cumbria Wildlife Trust, on Sunday, July 31, 9.30am until 4pm, held along the promenade at Grange-over-Sands.

This family event is free, no booking required. Please visit
