Our purpose is to inspire everyone with an interest in the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) to get involved in the conservation and enhancement of this special landscape.

Grants and Funding

Wildlife 1The Cranborne Chase Landscape Trust is hoping to launch a small projects grant scheme in the near future for suitable landscape conservation projects across the AONB. The scheme will provide part funding towards the cost of suitable projects.
