North Somerset Biodiversity Information

The Trust has just completed a small piece of work for North Somerset Council to identify individuals/ organisations willing and able to supply the Council with biodiversity information. The Trust has been assured by North Somerset Council that the data that it is sent is provided free of charge to BRERC, the regional environmental record centre for the former Avon area.

Signs & Waymarkers for Meadow Wood

The Forest of Avon Trust has worked with local farmer Mr Clapp to help him secure grants from the Forestry Commission for improving his community woodland: Meadow Wood. Grants have helped pay for a new sign welcoming people in to the woodland and waymarkers and posts. A grant will also contribute towards annual management costs for five years.

Meadow Wood is a fantastic developing woodland in the Avon Valley, adjacent to the Monarch’s Way between Keynsham and Bitton. Walkers are welcome. General location here.

The Forest of Avon Trust is advising a number of woodland owners about the grants which are available for woodland management and public access, (as well as new planting). If you have a woodland, please contact Jon Clark on (0117) 963 3383 to discuss further and arrange a free site visit.
