Nature Trail

Betws yn Rhos and Llanelian yn Rhos Community Council are considering preparing a Nature Trail in the locality to create and to re-kindle interest in the wild life of rural Wales. There is a project in place on behalf of the Welsh Government by Local Places for Nature to break down barriers that exclude disadvantaged communities from engaging in the world of nature. There are several public footpaths and old roads, such as the Drovers Road and the old Roman Road that go across the areas of Betws yn Rhos and Llanelian yn Rhos and the hope is to include some of these footpaths and roads in the ‘Nature Trail’. The trail would need to be accessible for all age groups and abilities. Support is being sought to start this project by anyone with a good knowledge of local history as well as a good understanding of wild life and familiar with the local public footpaths. If anyone has an interest in being involved in this project would you kindly contact the Clerk of the Community Council.
