Woodlands and Wetlands Project Manager

SDF funding will contribute towards the employment of a Project Manager to allow continuation, further the development and secure long term economic sustainability of a project set up by Pembroke 21C, titled “Training in skills for the management and maintenance of woodland and wetland habitats”. The project aim is, using two local sites, to develop a training programme in traditional woodland and wetland management skills. The two sites are the Hentland Willow Coppice Scheme next to Pembroke Refinery and Kingsmill Woodland on the National Trust Stackpole estate very close to Castlemartin. The Willow Coppice scheme is planting willow and hazel for short rotation coppice to be used for environmental projects, in particular river bank stabilization. The woodland is being thinned, paths cleared and laid and bridges built over ditches and streams. Areas of the woodland are being coppiced in rotation. In addition to the training programme both projects also provide opportunities for volunteering, employment and raising revenue for the benefit of the local community. With a consistent and professional approach the project manager would:- •Develop the training and volunteering opportunities and open the projects up to the local community •Develop the revenue raising opportunities of both projects •Develop the potential for establishing the carbon sequestration benefits of the site and establish a viable and sustainable corporate social responsibility scheme •Seek opportunities to bid to carry out this work on other sites in and around the National Park.
