Natural meadows help wildlife to thrive

A Blue Heart campaign meadow at East Court, East GrinsteadWe have set aside more space in local parks and open spaces this summer to create natural meadow areas that encourage native insects, wildlife and grassland species to thrive.

Areas of open space will be left to grow throughout the spring and summer in 40 locations across Mid Sussex as part of the national Blue Campaign.

Lowland grass is an essential part of the UK’s ecological infrastructure, but it is in rapid decline. The Blue campaign is a conservation initiative that aims to re-wild areas across Great Britain by allowing grass to grow naturally.

You will be able to spot the protected areas easily because each one is marked with a blue heart symbol.
