There are a number of Gateway Sites to the Humberhead Levels to help you explore this amazing area
The CONNECT Project is all about getting people involved in their local green spaces within the Humberhead Levels Nature Improvement Area (NIA).
There are some great places to visit in this area which offer spectacular wetland landscapes and wildlife. We want to encourage people to take a fresh look at the Humberhead Levels and what it has to offer in terms of unique landscapes and unusual species, and there’s no better way of doing this than by getting out and experiencing this area for yourself.
The CONNECT Project offers:
- a variety of fun activities for individuals, families, school parties and community groups at a range of sites within the NIA
- training opportunities for volunteers to gain in-depth knowledge about species and practical conservation within the NIA to help us monitor wildlife and protect precious habitats
- expertise and resources to enable community group leaders to lead their own wildlife sessions within the NIA, helping even more people to engage with their local wildlife.
- ideas for how you can encourage wildlife in your own local green spaces.
