Wildlife trail for Blackwater is our exciting project
Published 02/08/2014 | 00:00
THE 'Get Involved' project the Wexford People is championing is the creation of a wildlife trail in the heart of the village of Blackwater, by the local and very active Tidy Towns group, complete with a wildlife pond and appropriate signage.
The trail follows the course of the old millstream from the village centre to woodland on the seashore where it connects with other forest trails. Naturalist Chris Wilson is one of the advisers.
The concept was arrived at following discussions by members of Blackwater Tidy Towns about how the village can be enhanced and at the same time to chart how best to protect, preserve and enhance what is a very special and unspoiled local environment.
