• Re-opened College Lake Nature Reserve to enable visitors to enjoy the wildlife and tranquillity of this special site. Interpretation boards and seating have also be placed along the restored 1.5km path.
• We were highly commended for our work to conserve the Marsh Fritillary butterfly at Fernworthy Reservoir, by working with Butterfly Conservation we have improved and extended important Rhos pasture habitat and recorded this endangered butterfly both in flight and breeding on site.
• An area of valuable reed bed has been extended at Drift Reservoir by working with volunteers and the Wild Penwith Project.
• Conservation volunteers gave over 500 days in 2012 and our Conservation Team delivered outdoor learning activities to 18 schools
• We have recently upgraded our activity centres and have added more land based activities such as high ropes courses, archery and climbing walls. We have also improved over 10km of cycle trails and footpaths and have added a new clockwise cable wakeboarding system at Siblyback Lake.
