A full programme of free family-friendly events is being held across nature reserves in North East Wales this summer.

There is a wide variety of different outdoor nature-based activities for families to experience and enjoy and in addition, some unique events planned with an outdoor yoga session, bat walk and a nocturnal walk.

On Thursday 11 August, and new for Wild Ground there is an Outdoor Yoga session to connect people to the natural outdoors, through a relaxing and energising yoga session.

At Stryt Las Nature Reserve near Johnstown Wrexham, there are Pollinator Activity Day and Bushcraft events, which will get the kids outside in the fresh air and excited about nature.

At Trefnant and Glascoed Reserves near St Asaph, there is a Treasure Hunt & Make a Bug Hotel event and a BioBlitz event where families search out and ID all the species on the reserve.

Glascoed Reserve is on the edge of St Asaph Business Park, and in August two special lunchtime well- being walks are planned exploring the nature reserve. It is hoped to encourage local workers from the Business Park to enjoy connecting with nature in their lunch hour.

Glascoed is also the venue for a night-time Bat Walk on the 17 of August where night-time walkers search out favourite flying mammal.

Going on a nature walk at night means you will see and hear lots of things you would not notice in daylight and so the final event of the programme this Summer is a Nocturnal Walk at Broad Oak Nature Reserve on the 25th of August.

Booking is essential for all activities as spaces will be limited, although people can drop in on the lunchtime walks at Glascoed.
Details of all the events are on the events section of the Wild Ground website

Organisers ask you to email or call Wild Ground on 01978 757524. If attending the nature activities at Lane End, please state if you want to come in the morning or afternoon.
