Help Needed for Plant Life Wild Flower Walk and Orchid Count June 17th

Wild Flower Walk & Orchid Count

June 17 @ 10:00 am4:00 pm

Plantlife have put out a request for more volunteers to help with this orchid count – details below or click here for more.

Cae Blaen Dyffryn, near Lampeter, Carmarthenshire

Join us at beautiful Cae Blaen Dyffryn for the annual survey of the wild flowers and greater butterfly orchids at the reserve. With thousands of flowers to count, every pair of eyes is needed! You don’t need to be experienced in identifying wild flowers – just let us know and we’ll make sure someone can help you on the day.

The morning will include a guided walk around the reserve to help you can get familiar with the wild flowers and orchids found there, and a survey activity to find out which plants we can spot. We also hope to set up a moth trap to learn more about the insects using the reserve (weather dependent).

During lunch at a nearby school, you will have the opportunity to learn more about the annual survey, how we use the information to help us manage the reserve and what the results have shown in recent years. The afternoon will focus on counting the beautiful greater butterfly orchids found at the reserve.

To book please email cymru@plantlife.org.uk or call 02920 376193. Further details will be sent following your booking. If you would like to come along but can only make the morning or afternoon just let us know.

For more information contact Helen Bradley, Plantlife Cymru Outreach Officer, cymru@plantlife.org.uk, 02920 376193
