Leave a comment


The North Yorkshire and York Local Nature Partnership (LNP) is offering small grants through its new Community Fund. This fund has been created to support the activities of LNP partners and interested groups that are delivering the LNP’s vision, which is “to see the natural environment of North Yorkshire and York conserved, enhanced and connected for the benefit of wildlife, people and the economy.”

The fund is open to anyone working within the LNP’s area (see map above) and covers a wider range of activities, from capital items to insurance and staff costs. Applicants can bid for between £500 and £5,000.

The deadline for applications is 4 March 2018. For more information about this fund, including the guidance notes and application form, please contact:

I work in ecology and biodiversity in North Yorkshire. I'm often found outdoors snapping nature and landscapes or spotting birds. In the garden I enjoy having my hands in the earth and striving for the perfect mix of greens and browns in my compost. As a Daddy and adopter I'm used to endless questions about the world around us, and generally have an answer up my sleeve for most things. If you spot me and my hat in real life or on social media do say hello!
