The project was launched in autumn last year and aims to develop a wildlife-friendly space for outdoor recreation and education aimed at children and adults alike. It will include a series of children’s play features and a nature trail within a 60-acre native woodland in the north of the Island, which is part of the Trust’s Ramsey Forest initiative.
The site covers land from Ramsey Hairpin westwards, taking in Elfin Glen, Claughbane Plantation, Crossags Coppice, and Glion ny Crawe (the glen above Crossags Farm). The land is owned by the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture (DEFA) and the finished project is expected to open in 2019.
Paul Jones, Assurance Director at PwC Isle of Man said: ‘The ECO-Active project is a wonderful initiative and we are happy to play our part in helping bring it together. The PwC Isle of Man team really enjoyed our two community days this summer, when we worked on the education area, clearing and creating seating.’
The play trail will consist of a series of play features over a two-kilometre trail, interspersed with temporary or installed sculptures and quirky features.
Andree Dubbeldam from the Manx Wildlife Trust said: ‘This educational space in Claughbane Plantation will enable children to explore the science, art and joy of nature for years to come.
‘Staff from PwC have worked so hard to help us create a safe usable space with lots of personal touches.'
