There are a number of fun activities Gwynedd Council and its partners have arranged as part of the Pen Llŷn a’r Sarnau Special Area of Conservation over the next few weeks with the aim of celebrating Welsh wildlife. There will be a warm welcome for the whole family, and activities will be free.
The events planned include:
Picnic with a porpoise
Come and join us at Porthdinllaen to discover more about our fantastic dolphins and porpoises on Wednesday, 12 August 2009. Experts will be on hand to divulge their secrets and to keep a look out for these wonderful creatures. Why not bring a picnic and enjoy the scenery and you might just see these amazing creatures for yourself!
Everyone will meet at the National Trust car park at Porthdinllaen at 5pm on 12 August. This is a free event and all are welcome, but please note that children must be accompanied by an adult. The event should finish at about 7pm.
The event will be led by Alison Hargrave, Gwynedd Council Pen Llŷn a’r Sarnau Special Area of Conservation Officer and Nia Jones from North Wales Wildlife Trust.
Rock pool Safari
Discover some weird and wonderful rock pool creatures on Thursday, 20 August at Criccieth. See how many different kinds of crabs you can find and discover why some cover themselves in seaweed. Look for paddle worms, gobies, blennies, sea anemones and so much more.
The rock pool safari will be led by Alison Hargrave, Gwynedd Council Pen Llŷn a’r Sarnau Special Area of Conservation Officer and Rhys Jones, Gwynedd Council Senior Biodiversity Officer.
