Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Project

Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Project

Louth, Lincolnshire

The Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Project was set up to help protect and conserve Lincolnshire’s rare chalk streams which have been identified as priority habitat as part of Lincolnshire’s Biodiversity Action Plan.

The project is a partnership organisation that includes, the Environment Agency, Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service, Lincolnshire County Council, Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, Anglian Water, Natural England and the Wild Trout Trust.

Chalk streams are incredibly rare, with the majority of the world’s resource in England. They provide ideal conditions for wildlife and plant life including brown trout, water crowfoot and water voles.

The project seeks to restore river habitat through grant funded restoration projects, raise awareness through events, and engage the local community through educational and voluntary based projects.
