Call for funding to boost the nature project


A wellness and nature project hopes to raise at least £ 15,000 in just one week, to ‘boost its work of restoring nature and helping people enjoy spending time outdoors at the state Savage “.

Cambrian Wildwood is due to raise £ 15,000 by December 7 as part of the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2021, in which donations to participating charities will be doubled.

Cambrian Wildwood is restoring a vibrant, nature-rich landscape at Bwlch Corog, near Machynlleth, where he runs wellness and nature connection programs for a variety of different groups including vulnerable young adults, young caregivers and school children, and regular volunteer days.

The 350-acre site includes native deciduous forests, a valuable 10-acre fragment of ancient Celtic rainforest, and a globally significant cover bog.

Restoring nature to Bwlch Corog has already seen the planting of 2,000 native trees, the rewetting of bogs and bogs, and the introduction of wild horses whose conservation grazing helps wildflowers and other plants thrive.

Project director Simon Ayres said: “We have ambitious plans to strengthen our vital work for nature and people. at least £ 15,000 in just one week.

“Every donation we make to ourselves as part of the challenge will be doubled, which means double the impact.

“We urge people to give what they can to help us create positive, lasting change for people and nature.”

Clarissa Richards, education specialist at Cambrian Wildwood, said connecting people to wildlife is “fundamental” to good physical and mental health: “During the pandemic, some have found solace in nature, but the past 18 months have been extremely difficult for many people. We want to make sure that what we do at Bwlch Corog gives people the chance to thrive and enjoy the wilderness.
