Event 114: Forest Farm Pond Clearance And Raking

Cardiff Rivers Group made a return to Forest Farm to help the Rangers with a spot of reed clearing and raking in the main pond.

The 16 volunteers spent 2 hours helping Cardiff Council rangers with the muddy task of reed removal. The reeds had threatened to choke the pond, so reducing its biodiversity and habitat value.

As if to stress the importance of this pond habitat, a water vole, heron and toad came out to say hello to the volunteers!

Group member, Louise Tambini, said, “Today has been a change from our usual work, and although it was physically very demanding the volunteers really enjoyed themselves. It was lovely to see the local wildlife on site, as it just reinforces the importance of these green spaces in the City and how we must all play our part to look after them”.
