New ways to discover nature in Torfaen

Posted on: Tuesday 7 December 2021

Torfaen Council has installed new interpretation boards at four of its Local Nature Reserves (LNR’s) to help communities discover the value of nature on their doorstep.

The boards at Henllys, Cwmynyscoy, Tirpentwys and Cwmavon Corridor, explain how and why the sites are being managed for people and nature, the type of wildlife habitats and species that exist on each site, and what to look out for on your walks. The new boards also have QR codes added to the design that direct you to the South East Wales Biodiversity Records Centre (SEWBReC) where you can find out more about the importance of recording what you see. 

Councillor Mandy Owen, Executive Member for the Environment, said: “The interpretation boards are a good way to get to know the LNR’s better, and to appreciate the value of them. We want to be able to protect and enhance them so that future generations have a heritage as least as rich and diverse as we have inherited.

The project is part funded by the Welsh Government’s Enabling Natural Resources and Wellbeing Grant.
