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.
Come along and find out how you can help the red squirrels living in Clocaenog Forest.
Rowen Memorial Hall, Conwy LL32 8YA at 7.30pm, Conwy Friends of the Earth open discussion on Himalayan Balsam in the Conwy Valley.
The Snowdonia Society has been working very effectively to eradicate Himalayan Balsam around Llyn Tegid in Bala. Owain Thomas from the Society will talk about the work.
Conwy FoE are hoping to start to eradicate it in selected waterways in the Conwy Valley, and then (hopefully) further afield.
Please support the BSBI in this penultimate year of recording for the 2020 Atlas.

Please contact Clare if you wish to attend this consultation meeting about native bee habitat corridors.
Venue: Craig y Don Community Centre.
Refreshments from 7.20pm.
Talk starts at 7.40pm.
The talk will look at Wildflower Meadows - their decline since the 1930s, why they are so special, and the wildlife and pollinators they help support. Trevor will focus on the wildflower meadow he's been creating in the Conwy valley for the last three years, showing how it's changing each year, and how it performs through the year in terms of providing a source of nectar and pollen. He'll also look at some new research showing that we can't assume we know where our bees are foraging, which has big implications for what we should be planting and growing.
Trevor works for Plantlife, the wild plant conservation charity, as their Botanical Specialist.
This is an open invitation to anyone in the biodiversity community in Wales who would like to learn more about, and contribute to the development of, the NBN Atlas Wales.

The day is open to all, both experienced and novice users of the NBN Atlas Wales. We just ask that you have familiarised yourself with the site ahead of the day.
Lots of great events where you can get acquainted with mosses and liverworts across North Wales.
