Are you interested in science, nature and wild life? Nature recording is a wonderful way to make a real contribution to knowledge (for many groups, first records for Radnorshire or even for Wales are not that hard to find), it fosters a deep understanding of the natural surroundings, and it gets you outdoors and exploring the local area regularly. Here is your chance to get involved in nature recording, receive expert guidance, and make surprising discoveries,  right here in Llandrindod Wells!


Llandrindod Biodiversity Audit – your chance to get involved in biological recording - invitation from Dr Joe Botting, TLT member

photo of Joe BottingBiodiversity is a measure of a healthy environment, but as we know, the environment is changing fast. Although obvious creatures like birds and bees get most of the attention, their success is a symptom of wider changes going on in the ecosystem. As weather patterns change, we are seeing dramatic changes in the distributions of different species, particularly with insects and other groups spreading northwards, and others declining fast. Because ecology is a complex network of species and their interactions, changes in the abundance of apparently obscure groups (for example, minute parasitic wasps) can have dramatic effects on the natural environment as a whole. While spectacular pathogens like the Ash Dieback fungus Chalara fraxinea rightly grab the headlines, biodiversity is about much more than these. In order to safeguard and encourage our natural environment, the first stage is to understand it.

Wild Women in the Landscape: heartfelt workshops with Jane Cooke

These Heartfeltwork events (come to as many as you like) are for women to be together on the land, with nature, sharing our skills, enthusiasms and ways of being. Each day – and the camping weekend- will be a lovely, sharing way of exploring different ideas and experiences that will leave us feeling deeply enriched.
