Wetland Restoration

This project is about improving mangement of watercourses across the Down to the Coast landscape. Our lottery award enabled the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust to acquire 10 acres of wetland alongside the River Yar at Adgestone and manage it as the Morton Marsh Nature Reserve. This secures an unbroken 8km strech of the lower River Yar river from Bembridge Harbour to Alverstone in conservation management. 

Other works undertaken by the Trust as part of the project include:

  • removal of willow scrub to help conserve rare fenland habitat at Alverstone

  • scrub removal on the banks of the Wroxall Stream

  • scrub management at the unique Bohemia Bog

  • scrub management and new ponds at Sandown Meadows
