Are you interested in finding out more about wildlife? If so, volunteers are needed to help with national or locally run surveys. Sometimes training is available as part of these but our calendar also has details of other training courses, which may help improve your species identification and survey skills. Use the search facility to choose between Surveys , Training , Events or Meetings , or search by date or keywords.
Our calendar is not exhaustive and we need you to send us details of relevant events to keep it up to date. You may also find details of other biodiversity related events on the Wales Biodiversity Partnership website.

This 1 day event will be run by Laurence Clark and Kate Wilson. It takes place in the fascinating surroundings of Rhydymwyn Valley Reserve just outside the town of Mold towards Denbigh.

With many of the old buildings being slowly reclaimed by nature, it is a mysterious but superb area of biological diversity and great for photography!
Prices are just £65 per person for the whole day including 1 year membership to Rhydymwyn Reserve. (£5 membership to be refunded if memberships are not being accepted at the time). Tea/coffee/biscuits are provided as well as a light buffet lunch. The course will begin on the Saturday morning at 10:00am and will finish at approx. 4:00pm.
