Kent Wildlife Trust receive award from Medway Council – Isle of Grain

As a member of Kent Wildlife Trust, it’s excellent to read in their latest magazine (Wild Kent) that they have been awarded £35,000 by Medway Council to help with the development of a country park on the Isle of Grain.

The site, which is designated a Local Wildlife Site and Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), is populated by some invertebrates (including the Shrill Carder Bee) and is a well-known spot for watching winter waders.

The Trust has also received £3,500 from Natural England to help with the running of a young rangers scheme. The Trust will work with young people to develop a long-term site management plan and to improve facilities for visitors.
