The county's leading nature conservation organisation has been awarded nearly £56,000 to oversee a new nature project.
Sussex Wildlife Trust have been awarded £55,600 by the Heritage Lottery Fund to oversee 'Wild about Worthing' which is an urban nature project.
The two-year project allows Worthing residents a chance to experience the natural world while encouraging local wildlife to thrive in the specially created environment.
Planned activities include a town-wide gardening competition and a Forest School programme offering outdoor learning to pupils.
Although Worthing is densely populated, it has a huge wildlife potential with the South Downs National Park on one side and the coast on the other. Thanks to HLF's generous funding we can give the local community a chance to learn about all the wonderful wildlife on their doorstep and provide vital urban greenspaces where nature can flourish."
