The Wildlife Trusts across the UK are offering a huge range of nature-tastic events during this year’s Big Wild Weekend, which runs from 15-16 June. This special weekend marks the middle of 30 Days Wild, The Wildlife Trusts’ annual nature challenge that dares people to do something wild every day in June. This year is a record-breaker, with over 1,200 people across North Wales having signed up to take part.
North Wales Wildlife Trust are marking the weekend with a range of guided walks and nature themed activities that are taking place right across the region, from Anglesey to Wrexham. Whether it’s a long ramble through a nature reserve, a brisk stroll along a wildlife-rich headland or a relaxing mindfulness walk in the woods – here’s a quick taster of the kinds of activities on offer:
