Rye Reflections: a community engagement and arts project about landscape change

The Rye Reflections community engagement project sits within our Reconnecting People stream of work. The Ryevitalise Partnership wish to inspire local communities; to reconnect people with the river landscape and the wildlife that the river and surrounding area supports. We want to document changes in species abundance that have happened within the living memory of the community, including changes in the landscape and how it is managed. We want to highlight these changes, to help the community understand shifting baselines, and inspire the next generation to take action to conserve species and habitats in the future through our school outreach sessions. The anecdotal case studies we capture will include engaging and inspiring memories from the local community that will provide a rich body of content to inform the wider interpretation and events programme.
