Project Summary: Conservation
Conserving the Picturesque
Another exciting aspect of the Our Picturesque Landscape Project is to restore and preserve key views that many people may have not seen for decades and others may not have experiences in their lifetime. This includes views from the World Heritage Site and views of the World Heritage Site, such as views from Pontcysyllte, Chirk and Llantysilio. The project will also seek innovative solutions to reducing congestion, access and erosion issues at some of our most fragile sites.
Did You Know?
During year one of the project, 671 hours of conservation volunteering took place.
There are eleven projects within the theme of conserving the picturesque, which include managing some of the invasive species that have begun to dominate the landscape, and also restoring wildlife corridors which allow the native flora and fauna to flourish.
The Countryside Grant Scheme is an initiative supported by the Our Picturesque Landscape project to help fund local projects that endeavour to not only protect but also enhance the project area. Local projects that include hedge and pond restoration, tree planting, woodland or heathland management, or enhancement of ancient wetland could benefit from the fund.
