Our canal is an important wildlife resource. It provides a wildlife ‘corridor’ which allows wildlife to move freely between the river and the wider countryside. Worcester Canal Group, together with the Worcester, Birmingham & Droitwich Canal Society, wants to protect it.
But first, we need to find out what species of wildlife use the canal ‘corridor’. We have organised a ‘wildlife week’ along the canal with specialist events and a wildlife survey so that we can build up a picture of wildlife along the Worcester Canal. Come and join us! All welcome.
