Nature spotter sheets

Have you ever tried looking really closely at some of the flowers, leaves, lichens and insects we have around us?

The Plas yn Rhiw nature spotter takes visitors through the gardens, woodland and orchard with information and clues about where to find queen bumble bees in spring, wildflowers in summer or fungi in autumn amongst many other things.

Along with the booklet, you will get hand lenses and binoculars with the I.D. guides providing you with all you need to explore and discover.

Pollinator trail

Our pollinators trail will be running all summer. This self-led trail will take you on an adventure around the meadow at Plas yn Rhiw and includes a path around the garden, forest and orchard. You will get an answer sheet and become little explorers looking for information about different pollinators. This information scattered around on boards will help you answer the questions.
