Garden Wildlife Fun Day

Published: 08/06/2015

A garden wildlife fun day is being held at Wepre Park in Connah’s Quay on Sunday 14 June, as part of Wales Biodiversity Week 2015. Four activities will run in two sessions on the day – the morning session will be from 10.30 to 12.30, and the afternoon session will be 1.30pm to 3.30pm. The activities (which will all run in both the morning and the afternoon sessions) are a print making workshop, a planting session in The Old Hall garden, a bug box building workshop and soil surveys run by the OPAL project*. For all the activities, please meet at the Visitor Centre at Wepre Park. Cllr Bernie Attridge, Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “Wales Biodiversity Week is taking place from 6 to 14 June and this year’s theme is wildlife gardening. With these fun activities, our aim is to raise awareness of the importance of gardens as a habitat and to demonstrate some simple things that families can do at home to encourage wildlife into their own gardens. “The print-making is the only activity that needs to be booked in advance, either by calling the Wepre Park Visitor Centre on 01352 703900, or by emailing, which are also the contact details if you would like further information about any of the activities.” Note to Editors * Information about the OPAL project can be found at
