Introducing our Chalk Stream Film Project! Following on from our Hedgerow film, which helped raise awareness of the importance of hedgerows for biodiversity and carbon sequestration, we are planning to create a similar film focusing on our precious Chalk Stream.
Chalk Streams are a globally rare habitat and important from the point of view of the biodiversity they support. But they are also under threat. This film will show the great work by Watlington Environment Group (https://www.watlington-environment-group.org.uk/), River Thame Conservation Trust (https://riverthame.org/) and others to project and restore the habitat. The film will also feature Icknield Community College and local artists, demonstrating the value of collaboration with the community.
