The Plas Power project aims to make the Plas Power nature reserve in Tanyfron a more pleasant place to visit.
We will be managing the woodland, grassland and ponds to improve habitats for wildlife.
The project aims to improve the biodiversity of the site and assist in improved community understanding and respect for its importance. Knowledge, skills, empathy and understanding of the importance of biodiversity will be gained in the surrounding community and potentially Wrexham more widely, principally the project will be working with residents from the locality.
The project will identify appropriate areas for ground-nesting birds, fencing off and cutting grass to create optimum conditions for nesting. Promoting and establishing community learning events to share knowledge and information about the site and biodiversity in general. The project is likely to have a wider positive impact on pollinating insects and other species is beyond the site perimeter.
Volunteer work parties will be established to undertake site enhancements. Volunteers will benefit from training and studies, non-accredited training in countryside maintenance skills.
The project will run until September 2021. This project is funded by Welsh Government’s Landfill Disposal Tax Communities Scheme, administered by WCVA.
