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.
All meetings will start at 10.00 am on 4th Thursday of each month, unless otherwise specified.
There is no need to book but it is advisable to let me and/or leaders know if you plan to come in case there are late changes.
Members attend at their own risk. Bring lunch and be equipped for adverse weather conditions and wet, rocky or uneven ground.
