    Grass Strimming and raking

    With Network Rail

    About 19.2 miles away from your postcode

    At Great Stukeley Sssi

    Activity description

    This site is a rare and important grassland habitat so we're helping to manage it for wildlife by keeping nutrient levels low. Strimming the grass off and raking it away from the grassland means nettles and thistles are less likely to thrive, giving more chance for wildflowers to do well.
