Don’t stay in the dark like a mushroom.
We in Wales have a short timeframe to change the way we manage our land, otherwise the nature we rely on will crash.
Our economy, health and wellbeing all depend on a healthy natural environment, so we can’t afford to miss this opportunity.
Tell Welsh Government you want a new system that restores nature and benefits society, where people who work on the land, like our farmers, are incentivised to provide these benefits, or it just won’t happen.

What a great start to the working season with perfect weather to tackle the overgrowth and the challenges the summer months had mustered up for us.
Additional heathers were added to the ‘Guideling Bank’ in 2015 and we last tried to clear brambles and ferns about 18 months ago. We interfere as little as possible with nature but the heathers offer an attractive diverse flora to this area of the site.
Said Vernon – Trustee and active volunteer.
Heather is also called ‘Ling’. You can find it on heaths, moors and bogs, where its delicate, loosely arranged pink flowers attract all kinds of nectar-loving insects.
Abundant in woodlands with acidic or peat soils, it’s delicate pink flowers appear from August to October and are a contrast to the tough, wiry, sprawling stems they grow upon. Plants grow tightly packed together and can live for up to 40 years or more.
We also felled some trees that became unsafe during the odd weather we had this summer.
If you’d like to join us to help we are at Coed y Werin every Sunday morning between 10 and 12 (weather permitting) come and say hello!
Join us for an enchanted journey through our woods and learn a little about nature and it’s treasures.
On Sunday 26 August 2018 the Trust will be holding an open event aimed at encouraging children young and not so young to get outdoors and learn more about our Woodland and countryside, the natural seasons for our Woods and it’s inhabitants.
Our free event the ‘Enchanted Woods’ will take place in Coed y Werin and whilst children, accompanied by their parents, are searching for the fairies, elves and perhaps the odd dragon that live within the Woods, they’ll also be learning about our diverse native Woodland species that live amongst the wildflowers, fungi, fruits, seeds and most importantly nature’s intricate ever perpetuating cycle of life.
It’ll be an opportunity for young and not so young to find out how to get involved in volunteering and supporting this great Trust.
