Portbury Wharf Nature Reserve
Can it be run by the Community? We think it can!
We believe there are many benefits of a community run nature reserve to preserve, promote and protect the wildlife here for generations to come.
Portbury Wharf is a significant area, it is the gateway linking the reserves of the Gordano valley, a Site of Special Scientific Interest, with the Severn Estuary an internationally important *Ramsar site.
Following July’s well attended public meeting where there was great support for a community Trust we have gathered together a group of local people with the necessary skills to form a charitable Trust.
Later this month the prospective trustees have been invited by Portishead Town Council and the Gordano Parish Councils to present an outline proposal for a Trust run nature reserve.
*RAMSAR is an international convention for the conservation and wise use of wetlands and their resources. See more at http://www.ramsar.org
