Bwlch Corog is currently dominated by purple moor grass, with about 25 acres of ancient woodland in the northern corner alongside a couple of streams. Cambrian Wildwood aims to increase the area of woodland, with native woodland colonizing naturally, assisted by the planting of around 5,000 trees.
It also plans to restore the heathland, bring back many lost animal species, and create trails that will allow people to walk around and enjoy the wildwood.
“Now that we have acquired land for the project, we need people's support to start the restoration of wildlife on Bwlch Corog and to transform it into a beautiful, wild landscape for people to visit and enjoy,” said Cambrian Wildwood's Phil Evans.
Other plans for 2018 include access to the site for children's education, and a range of studies to identify the birds, plants and invertebrates that are currently present on the site.
A rare birch tree (Betula Celtiberica) has already been discovered at Bwlch Corog.
