Experience Wild Wales during Wales Biodiversity Week


Published 09 June 2014


Nature lovers across the Vale are being encouraged to rediscover their wild side between 7 and 15 June to help make Wales Biodiversity Week a huge success.



This annual event held across the country looks to celebrate the amazing wealth of wildlife found in Wales, and there are numerous nature-inspired activities to get involved here in the Vale of Glamorgan.


On 7 June, Cosmeston held a pond dip and bug hunt between for children aged 7-12, on 11 June there will be a nature ramble around East Aberthaw Nature Reserve between 6pm and 8.00pm, and on 12 June Porthkerry Country Park will be hosting a night time bat walk at 9.00pm.


Places are limited for most of these activities, so visitors are encouraged to contact the parks to book a place in advance.


Sunday 8 June has also been dubbed ‘open farm Sunday’ as many of the Vale’s local farms will be open to the public, offering activities such as tractor rides and wildlife talks. Slade Farm Organics, Hendrewennol Fruit Farm, Amelia Trust Farm, Goldsland Farm, and Old Cogan Hall Farm will all be open during the day.
