Site to promote 'science, art and joy' of nature
Staff at Island accountancy firm PwC have completed a project to help prepare a woodland in the north of the Island for a new era of public access.
The company, a corporate member of Manx Wildlife Trust, lent staff to the charity's ECO-Active project within Ramsey Forest.
A vision for a 'wildlife-friendly' outdoor recreation and education space on the native woodland site, includes new features, a children's nature trail, sculptures and 'quirky' features.
A team from PwC spent two community days this summer clearing the site, which spans 60 acres west of Ramsey Hairpin, taking in Elfin Glen, Claughbane Plantation, Crossags Coppice and Glion ny Crawe.
Andre Dubbeldam from MWT said a safe, useable space with lots of personal touches had been created which would "enable children to explore the science, art and joy of nature for years to come."
