Thanks to support from our Community Climate Fund an online map has been created by Greening Steyning Bramber & Upper Beeding to help the local community to map and understand their area in order to inform future biodiversity or conservation projects.

This active community group ran an initial training session in January 2021 to run through what needed to be recorded and how to record it, with a follow up session out in the field. The results were then recorded in an interactive online map.

They have also produced a 15 minute video telling the story of Nature Map, explaining why it was made, how it was done, and what it tells the community about the countryside around Steyning, Bramber and Beeding – and how they can help preserve it by working together.

Greening Steyning are now looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help the next stage the mapping project focusing in particular on hedgerows.  You’ll be trained so don’t worry about knowledge and experience. If interested contact Action Group Co-ordinator Ronnie
