A big thank you to everyone who took part in celebrating Wales Nature Week!

A huge thanks to our partner organisations and Local Nature Partnerships who make Wales Nature Week happen. And thanks to the social media community -friends old and new for sharing your posts & enthusiasm and passion for nature with us. Our social channels are open year-round – do keep posting and sharing your experiences of nature!

We look forward to joining with you to celebrate Wales Nature Week 2025!

What to expect at events

There will be something for everyone – events for individuals, families and those who are new to nature, to the more seasoned nature lover.

Wales Nature Week events are held each year at Wildlife Trust and RSPB reserves, local and national nature reserves, parks and community green spaces, schools and worship sites, beaches and coastal areas.

A typical event involves a guided walk at a nature site. An expert guide will point out plants and animals and the importance of the habitat and answer any questions you have. The vast majority of events are free*

*Entrance charge to a small selection of events may apply. This supports the valuable work the organisation carries out for nature.

Awareness raising events

  • Public Health Wales will be sharing stories and photos each day on our internal channels during Wales Nature Week of what staff are doing in their own gardens to make space for nature. Our June action in our sustainability calendar is ‘Give Nature a Home’ and we have a Green Advocates Network workshop staff can attend for top tips and inspiration!
  • Celebrating Wales Nature Week through reading with Carmarthenshire Libraries during Wales Nature Week, as well as getting out to explore nature in Carmarthenshire, why not explore nature at your local library? Reading nature books will introduce you to new species and habitats, places to visit, local walking routes and help you appreciate and understand the natural world around you.
  • To celebrate Wales Nature Week the Cardiff Local Nature Partnership launched a wildlife gardening competition. Entries are open to all whether you have a small window box, hanging basket, bucket- sized pond, raised planter, community garden, roof garden, or a traditional front or back garden. Your entry will contribute to a city-wide map to show where wildlife – friendly gardens are in Cardiff.
