Working towards a wildlife-friendly and sustainable community centre
The Environmental Group has surveyed the Calon y Fferi site and classified areas with value in terms of harbouring wildlife. We are putting together management plans for each, including if and when to mow grassy areas, what species of plants to include and types of access for the public.
Sixteen species of butterfly have already been spotted here. Click here to see details about these species’ preferred habitats and larval food plants.
More information coming soon!
Some of the children at Ferryside school have been recruited to assist with a part of the Environmental Group’s job of encouraging and monitoring biodiversity at the site. The pupils will be checking insect havens to see who in the insect world has made them their home.
Visitors to Calon y Fferi recently will have seen boards going up all over the place proclaiming ‘Wildlife refuge’ and noticed areas that seem unkempt and in need of good strimming! Well, it’s all for a very good reason.
