Welcoming the Ouse

By Weald to Waves - 04 March 2023

Rivers can form a critical part of nature corridors. They are home to hundreds of species of plants and animals. The water itself, riverbank vegetation and floodplains combine to offer rich habitats and food sources for birds, mammals, fish and amphibians. They also connect our terrestrial and marine environments, making them a vital part of Weald to Waves.

Alongside our West Sussex rivers, Arun and Adur, the Ouse river offers an important link to our East Sussex landscape. After a number of promising conversations with community groups and landowners, we are delighted to bring the Ouse river into the corridor route. There is a strong ribbon of partnerships along the river that will help to inspire work across the project.

Look at Love Our Ouse, Sussex Flow Initiative and the Ouse and Adur Rivers Trust for more information about this vibrant river community.
