WMCA Community Green Grants: Increasing Biodiversity Webinars
The WMCA Community Green Grants offers small and large grants to organisations in the West Midlands to run projects that increase access to green/blue space and improve biodiversity.
The WMCA are running a series of short webinars on various topics that will equip projects with the knowledge needed to make sure increasing biodiversity is part of the project plan.
Aim of webinar
There are loads of benefits to nature by installing a pond in your community/ project space. Not only are they great for wildlife they are also educational. Ponds come in all different shapes and sizes and Mike Webb (Natural Capital Programme Manager) from WMCA Environment Team will talk through how to create a pond to attract the best of British wildlife.
About Community Green Grants
The WMCA Community Green Grant will fund projects that tackle green deprivation whilst also improving the local environment, by:

A commitment to increasing biodiversity is essential to the success of your project.
