Friends' Group

Friends' Group
~
The Friends' Group was formed in 1989, by an enthusiastic group of local residents who work with Cardiff County Council to further improve the Reserve. Works continue today to develop Howardian Local Nature Reserve for its wildlife interest and public enjoyment. Friends of Howardian LNR have developed and maintain this website. Long serving Friends' Group members have local roads named after them.
