Stort Valley Project Summary
A series of linked projects on the Town Park Marsh Local Wildlife Site (LoWS) (Town Park, Stage IV) form a long term vision for the improvement of this site. It is hoped that once complete the site will be as valuable for wildlife as the adjoining areas of the Harlow Marsh Local Nature Reserve (LNR), and that the site can also achieve LNR status and protection.

Phase 2 - Stort Valley Meadow - wildife habitat improvents
Work due to commence autumn 2012.
Scarifying of soil as part of phase 2. Planting by volunteers as part of sustainability part of phase 1.
