Chalk grassland flowers on the downs


Changing Chalk is an exciting new project which focusses on the chalk grassland landscape of The South Downs, seeking to reverse the decline of the rare habitat. We’ll discuss how the chalk grassland came to be, why it is under threat, and the various projects under the Changing Chalk umbrella, focussing on Downs From Above and Monument Mentors.

The talk will start at our site hut in Butts Brow car park but may involve a short walk to other areas. Free tickets but booking is essential

Changing Chalk is a partnership of organisations supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund working together for the future of the South Downs. Through this project, we are reversing the decline of the fragile chalk grassland, and connecting local communities to the nationally significant landscape on their doorstep. Led by the National Trust, the partnership connects nature, people and heritage. It is restoring lost landscapes and habitats, bringing history to life and offering new experiences in the outdoors.
