Carbon Landscape Partnership
Present… Re-introduce you love.
“Species in the North West of England are becoming extinct because of us, humans. Our natural environment is being squeezed into smaller and smaller pieces and this is affecting our wildlife. We have to make a difference now and the Carbon Landscape Partnership is taking on this challenge! We are a National Lottery Heritage Funded project based right here in the North West. We are made up of fourteen organisations, all working together to make our environment better for wildlife and for people. Working closely with other organisations, charities, community group, school and volunteers we have already made a difference but we need more help. In fact, we need Landscape Adventurers!!! We need everyone to get outdoors and explore these amazing places we have right here in Wigan, Warrington and Salford. To help you, we will soon be launching our Landscape Adventure Map and Activity Sheet on our website www.carbonlandscape.org.uk. To find out when, to keep up to date with what we are doing, then visit our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages.” #CarbonLandscapePartnership #NationalLotteryHeritageFund #NLHF #GreatManchesterWetlands #LancashireWildlifeTrust #CheshireWildlifeTrust #CityofTrees #EnvironmentAgency #GreaterManchesterEcologyUnit #InspiringHealthyLifestyles #MerseyRiversTrust #NaturalEngland #SalfordCityCouncil #UniversityofManchester #WarringtonBoroughCouncil #WiganCouncil
