A Cornish name has been given to a new project in Penwith that is being run by the National Trust.

The project began in 2010 when National Trust Ranger, Shaun Boynes decided to put infrastructure into a hidden wooded valley near Zennor so that school groups could visit and learn about wildlife and the importance of different habitats. A working holiday group developed the site in March of this year, with funding from the Guardianship Community Partnerships, creating an outdoor classroom and living willow hides, introducing a pond for dragonflies, setting up bird boxes with cameras inside and improving access to the site.

“The idea is that the children can visit and learn a lot about wildlife but can also have fun and games,” said Shaun. “We are going to do lessons on survival skills, woodland art, wild camping and surveys of birds, butterflies, fungi and the river.”

The Penwith National Trust Association donated money to pay for the bird box cameras, and members of the Association were also asked to suggest names for the project. Alison Bushrod’s Cornish suggestion of ‘Bewnans Gwyls Kernewek Kudh’ (Hidden Cornish Wildlife) was chosen, and the title has been carved into an oak plaque which is on display at the site.
