Pembrey Forest is owned by the Forestry Commission (FC) and
extends to some 2,600 forest and dune acres (including SAC and SSI)
in Coastal South Carmarthenshire.
The Conservation Volunteers are working in partnership with FC
to develop a range of new access provision, interpretation, way
marking, marketing and habitat creation.
This will increase the forest’s profile, enhance the visitor
experience and enable the forest to become a desirable destination
for local and staying visitors.
Located in the upper region of the Gwendraeth Valley is Carmel
NNR, where The Conservation Volunteers is working in partnership
with The Grasslands Trust to:
- develop new access trails and create habitat to support the
expansion and management of herb rich meadows and woodlands
- build dry stone walls that form an important vernacular feature
and habit within the reserve.
- install a network of bubble walks, way marking and
interpretation panels to deliver a greater visitor experience.
At both sites The Conservation Volunteers is working with
volunteers to carry out these improvements.
