Case studies

The Stroud landscape project is fighting climate change and making more space for nature in the west Cotswolds. Here are just a few examples of what we've been up to.

Seed harvesting

Wildflower seed harvesting for grassland restoration

Wildflower seed harvesting and sowing is a major part of the Stroud landscape project. With the help of local landowners, we're restoring many areas back to species-rich grassland.

Autumn's a good time to start clearing the scrub

Scrub control

Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons are home to some of the country's very best wildlife. We're managing the grassland on the commons so nature thrives.

Bristol and Gloucestershire Gliding Club partnership

We're working in partnership with the Bristol and Gloucestershire Gliding Club to help them make more space for nature.

Long-horn cows keep the grass short

Cattle grazing

Cattle grazing is essential to our management of the internationally significant commons. We work with the graziers to maintain a balanced grassland ecosystem.
