Liverpool City Region

Stretching from our famous coastline to our estuaries, our urban parks and green spaces, including our rural hinterland, the richness and diversity of the Liverpool City Region’s natural environment is unique.

Nature Connected will provide strategic leadership and direction to enhance, harness and celebrate our natural environmental assets, and with our partners, mobilise resources to protect and manage them for their intrinsic value, and to support sustainable economic growth and improved quality of life.
