2019 is a big year for the environment – and a special one for The Mersey Forest.
The government has named 2019 as the Year of Green Action
– and as part of that, Nature Connected, the Liverpool Nature Partnership, is planning a Year of Action for the Environment
2019 will be a year of green action across Liverpool City Region where people from all backgrounds will have the opportunity to be involved in projects that improve the natural world. The aim is to leave a better environment for the next generation to inherit and make our area one of the best places in the country to live, work and flourish.
What's more, 2019 marks the 25th birthday
for the first trees planted as part of The Mersey Forest. Our plan and organisation is 25 years old, and we'll be doing lots to mark the occasion later in the year.
A Liverpool City Region Year of Environment 2019 website
has been created to act as a hub for activities/events and communication throughout the year.
Our celebrations kick off with a big community tree planting event
at the Countess of Chester Country Park on Saturday 2 March 11-2pm.
2019 is a great year to discover The Mersey Forest!
