There has been “treemendous” support from volunteers at Alyn Waters Country Park who have just finished planting trees along the entrance to Alyn Waters Country Park. 🙂
That makes 1,000 trees planted in the Park in the past few weeks.
The trees have been planted as part of a new, innovative project – The Wrexham Green Infrastructure Project which aims to improve local green spaces throughout Wrexham. The project actively encourages the local community to take an active role in caring for our environment.
“Amazing achievement for Alyn Waters”
Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “This is an amazing achievement for Alyn Waters and I would like to thank everyone involved for their hard work. It fits in perfectly with our recently declared climate emergency and will help reduce our carbon emissions in addition to improving even further the outstanding scenery in our country parks for future generations.”
Jacinta Challinor, Green Infrastructure Officer said, ‘This event is part of a wider project to enhance biodiversity throughout Wrexham and reduce noise and air pollution affecting the local area.’
Volunteers from the local community, local schools and the Friends of Alyn Waters all worked with our tree officer and Rangers to plant the trees. We are grateful to the funding received from the Welsh Assembly Government and The Woodlands Trust which has allowed us to create this vital habitat link for local wildlife in years to come.
