What small changes are local people making to make a big difference to nature? Visit Dunham Massey to see photographs of those who are doing their bit for nature every day. Join the conversation and let us know what you care about when it comes to local nature.

From Saturday 29 June – Sunday 3 November, discover a photography exhibition featuring local people who are doing their bit for nature every day. Get up close to portraits captured by Manchester photographer Jan Chlebik. From staff and volunteers working to conserve Dunham Massey on a daily basis, to tenant farmers from the wider estate, and everyday people doing their part from the Trafford area, be inspired by their stories and see what you can do to help nature close to home.

Following on from Faces of Change: Nature's Champions earlier in the year, which focused on those who have shaped the way we think about nature, Local Lives will focus on local champions who help to look after green spaces today. The exhibition will focus on a range of people, from volunteer ranger Justine Lord to tenant farmers Little Heath Farm, we will be asking what nature means to them, and what they would do to protect it.
