About Return meadows to former glory

Return meadows to their former glory through scrub control and infrastructure maintenance.

The fabulous grassland meadows along the Jurassic Coast need your help. Work alongside our rangers to clear invading scrub and rebuild dry-stone walls to help to return the meadows to their former wild flower glory. This holiday has been running for a number of years and the value of the nature conservation work carried out is having a real benefit to the site, its grassland habitat and its wild flowers. Once there was scrub now there are orchids. Bonfires and amazing coastal views are guaranteed.
