A new wildlife garden for Bangor!

Wednesday 1st November 2017

Are you keen to learn how to create a wildlife garden? Well now is your chance to come along and find out more, while lending a hand at the Trust’s new office in Bangor.

The Trust’s new office in Bangor has a garden that has been neglected for a number of years. But not for much longer! Over the coming months we will be creating a wildlife friendly garden for creatures large and small.

Everybody is invited to come along and give us a hand. We have allocated a few days in the volunteer diary and these are on Tuesdays between 10am and 1pm. The next ones are on 14th November and 12th December.

So far… We made a good start this week, mainly weeding out invasive plants, brambles and Carex pendula on the upper bank so that we could make a level for our amazing volunteer Rheon to build a low retaining stonewall. An area was cleared for a small meadow and we have a brilliant ‘den area’ right at the top of the hill where we will be having log piles, stone piles and maybe a pond. We were also joined on our work day by a variety of garden wildlife including a frog, two red admirals feeding on the ivy and plenty of birds; goldcrests, coal tits, black birds and a robin. 

Next time… we are hoping to do a bit of digging for the pond and plant a few shrubs and bulbs.

Get involved… Anna Williams for more information or to let her know that you will be joining us: annawilliams@wildlifetrustswales.org

You can just turn up on the day with no prior booking too. Our new office is at Llys Garth, Garth Road, Bangor, Gwynedd, LL57 2RT, Tel: 01248 351 541.
