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.
Lots of great events where you can get acquainted with mosses and liverworts across North Wales.

Croeso cynnes i bawb. Welcome to all for this year's programme. You do not need to be a member of the BSBI, just interested in plants and understand that you come at your own risk. No need to reserve a place. Lifts usually from Ruthin Rugby Club SJ118578 please ask for departure times.
The North Wales Wildlife Trust Bird Race will be on Saturday May 5th this year. Please join in – and tell others about it!
This will be the 6th year of the Race. Over 50 participants have taken part so far, ranging from bird beginners and babes in arms to some of the top ornithologists in the region. So far, close to 150 species have been recorded on the race across the diverse habitats of NWWT reserves. These include Roseate Tern, Blue-headed Yellow Wagtail, Arctic Skua, Hen Harrier, Short-eared Owl, Ring Ouzel, Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, Osprey, Black Guillemot and Wood Warbler to name just a few.
The race itself is a celebration of birds and habitats, an opportunity / excuse to be out all day (and some of the night if you want!), and hopefully lots of fun…
Dr Liz Halliwell will be talking about the pine marten and whether it may be the answer to all our red squirrel dreams, there will also be a talk from Dr Craig Shuttleworth about his research expedition to Canada where he was exploring grey squirrel management techniques.
Doors will open at 7pm for hot drinks and homemade cake, it is free entry but donations are welcome. Please contact Holly to reserve your place.
