Between 10am and 5pm there will be an opportunity to call in at the Bioblitz basecamp at the amphitheatre at Oriel Plas Glyn y Weddw to learn more about the species we’re hoping to find during the day and take part in wildlife themed craft activities. This is also where Cofnod the local record centre will be set up busy entering all the records online so that we’ve got a running total of the different species spotted throughout the day.
A full timetable of activities have been planned with an array of wildlife experts ensuring we’ve explored as many of the different habitats found in the area as possible. From kayaking in search of sea birds, scavenging the strandline for shark egg cases, enjoying the dawn chorus, wandering the woodlands searching for lichens or heading up to the heathland in the company of our special guest Iolo Williams, there will be plenty to get involved with during the day.
All activities are free. Please use the National Trust car park at Llanbedrog beach - £5 all day or free for National Trust members and arrive early if it’s a sunny day as the car park may fill up with beach goers.
Book for some of the walks/events here.
Come and help record species in the University grounds.
20th August (Saturday) 10:00am - 4:00pm (call in at any time).
Meet at university carpark (SJ23626910; Location)
Come and enjoy this fascinating post-industrial nature reserve with a wide range of nature-themed activities aimed at people of all ages available throughout the day! Bring a picnic.

The Bilberry Bumblebee (Bombus monticola) is one of our most beautiful bumblebees! As its name suggests, it mostly occurs in areas where Bilberry grows on the uplands and heathlands of the UK, including Wales.
Evidence suggests that the Bilberry Bumblebee is declining in the UK, most likely as a result of habitat loss. In Wales, records show a reduction in the Bilberry Bumblebee’s range, indicating a similar decline to the rest of the UK.
We urgently need more records of where the Bilberry Bumblebee occurs and that’s where you come in! Every recorded sighting contributes to our understanding and future conservation of the species.
