Friends of Rhydymwyn Valley Events 2008
On Saturday 13th September 2008 the
Rhydymwyn Valley Site celebrated five
years as a nature reserve.
Events throughout the day were
organised by North East Wildlife and in
the evening the Friends of Rhydymwyn
Valley celebrated with a very successful
barbecue with music from Espionage
During the day the Art in Nature mosaic
was unveiled to the public , there were
birds of prey, displays from conservation
organisations and a wildlife walk
through the valley site. Footage from the
old munitions film was displayed in the
afternoon, and visitors to the site were
able to make bug boxes, bird boxes and
plasticine creatures to take home, bug
motels were made for installation on the
site and butterfly pictures were painted
to add to the already beautiful displays in
the Conservation Building
