York Greenway Champions
York Greenway Champions exist to promote the biodiversity and amenity value of the Greenways in and around the historic city of York.
We are a charitable voluntary group based in York and founded in 2010
We work with local people, environmental and community groups to maintain verges, encourage the growth of native wild flowers and create pocket parks
What is a Greenway?
"A Greenway is a network of largely off-road routes connecting people to facilities and open spaces in and around towns, cities and the countryside. They are for use by people of all abilities on foot, bike or horseback, for commuting, play or leisure"

This project grew out of YWT's 'Wildflowering York' initiative. YWT provide support and technical guidance on environmental issues (see 'Links' above for more information)
Most of Yorks 'Greenways' lie on the National Cycle Network and we work closely with Sustrans who are developing a Biodiversity Action strategy across the entire network. (see 'Links' above for more information)
