Flowers of the Limestone Hills – Part 1 of 2 training sessions

Volunteer training

Volunteers wanted!

Many of Morecambe Bay's limestone hills are clothed in wildflowers. Many are familiar, such as on Whitbarrow Scar and Humphrey Head. However, there are also smaller areas of flower-rich grassland which help to link up these larger areas but are less well-known or understood. Morecambe Bay Partnership is looking for volunteers to help gather information about these places and get to know their true value so that we can work with landowners to conserve them.
