WAM Wednesdays

Fancy some volunteering in our beautiful countryside to improve the environment for both wildlife and people? Then it’s time to get in touch with Amy Green, North Wales Wildlife Trust, Wild About Mold (WAM) project officer, who is leading work parties in the Upper Alun and Chwiler valleys on Wednesdays as part of the WAM project, funded by the National Lottery and the HDH Wills Charitable Trust.

There will be a series of events, activities, workshops and volunteer opportunities occurring until October 2019, offering people the chance to learn about their local wildlife and how to help it, whilst also giving local green spaces some much deserved care and attention.

Over the next couple of months you can try your hand at scything, and pulling up himalayan balsam at various sites.

  • Scything – 14 to 17 August at Pantymwyn, and 11 to 14 September in Mold. Learn traditional methods for harvesting a hay meadow, which are important for wildlife.
  • Himalayan balsam pulls – 8 August Afonwen area, 22 August Bodfari area, and 5 September near Afonwen. A day on the river tackling this invasive non-native plant.

To book onto a task and for details of where to meet and times please contact Amy on 0796 1698 437 or email AmyGreen@wildlifetrustswales.org

In the autumn and winter trees will be planted as part of the WAM scheme.

Where would you like trees to be planted in Mold, perhaps on a verge or a plot of land by where you live? Would you like a tree for your garden or estate?

Detailed maps of Mold have been prepared to identify potential sites for more trees and wild flowers. Please contact Mold Town Council on 01352 758532 with your suggestions or email supportofficer@moldtowncouncil.org.uk
