Living Landscapes

Imagine a Nottinghamshire... where wildlife flourishes in our countryside, towns and villages; where children grow up inspired by the sights and sounds of nature; where people live happier, healthier lives. This is our vision of a Living Landscape for Nottinghamshire.


The last 100 years has seen huge changes for our wildlife and natural environment. Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust believes that now is the time to think big and enter a bold new phase in our landscape-scale approach to nature conservation - a vision to recreate and reconnect our fragmented landscape. This involves restoring large areas of habitat, improving the connections between greenspaces and making the wider landscape more wildlife friendly.

This vision is to create a Living Landscape for Nottinghamshire that can adapt to climate change, provide resilience and connectivity for wildlife, access and enjoyment for people and a sustainable, low carbon contribution to the economy. With your help we can shape a bright future for the wildlife and people of the county.

In addition to managing our extensive estate of nature reserves and supporting landowners and farmers across the county, Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is actively delivering a range of major schemes covering areas such as the Idle Valley, Erewash Valley and Sherwood Forest which directly contribute to our Living Landscape Vision. By creating and linking a series of Living Landscape schemes across Nottinghamshire we will, over time, develop a network of high quality natural areas for wildlife and people. Further details of our approach and our major schemes can be found in ‘Creating a Living Landscape for Nottinghamshire’.
