Trefnant Nature Time Project!

North East Wales Wildlife Ltd. (NEWW) has gained a fantastic opportunity to work with local communities in and around Trefnant to help their local wildlife! NEWW is a nature conservation charity that protects green spaces to benefit people and wildlife.  The charity is based at Tan y Fron, Wrexham, and looks after 15 nature reserves across North Wales.  NEWW has secured funding from the Postcode Local Trust, thanks to players of the People’s Postcode Lottery, for a project called ‘Trefnant Nature Time’.  This exciting project will enable the charity to work with local communities to improve the Trefnant Nature Reserve which is located off Ffordd Pen y Maes, close to Trefnant village centre.

The Trefnant Nature Time project will run throughout this year until mid-December 2017, and will provide a whole host of opportunities for people to get involved, including ‘have a go’ practical conservation sessions, wildlife walks and talks and wildlife surveys.  NEWWildlife will also be setting up a volunteer team to enable people to get involved in looking after the reserve and help keep it in good condition to benefit the wealth of wildlife that can be found there. Some of the things that we specifically aim to achieve through this project include pond improvements, the creation of hibernation sites for amphibians and other animals, the construction of barn owl nest boxes, hedgerow improvements and compiling a site species list.     NEWW’s Reserves Development Manager, Paul Furnborough, said “We are really excited to have secured this funding to deliver this project based around the Trefnant Nature Reserve.  It’s a great opportunity for people to connect with their local wildlife, as well as being able to meet new people and learn new skills’.
