Welcome to the Friends of Forest Farm
In March 1990 a Group was formed to contribute in whatever way possible to the protection and development of the Glamorgan Canal Local Nature Reserve and Forest Farm, and to promote the study of flora and fauna in their natural habitat. The Nature Reserve, situated in Whitchurch Cardiff, was formed in 1967 and straddles the last remaining stretch of the former Cardiff Merthyr canal which still holds fresh water to a quality good enough to provide a good hunting ground for Kingfishers, Herons and many others species. The majority of the woodland is Beech and Oak with several trees being over 200 years old, and the part called Long Wood is designated a S.S.S.I together with the Canal.
