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.

For all new to lichens, but intrigued to find out more. This half-day workshop will introduce you to the range of lichens to be found locally in Treborth Gardens. If weather is on our side, we'll walk through the grounds looking at the form and features of lichens on the doorstep. If wet, we'll have plenty of interesting specimens available for you to examine under dissecting microscopes.
