City Nature Challenge 2024: Swansea

Last year, Swansea was one of over 482 city regions taking part worldwide to make observations of wild plants and animals. Anyone can join in – young, old, experienced naturalists and curious beginners!

Our CVCP contribution to the City Nature Challenge is a Bluebell Walk lead by Barbara Parry and supported by Evelyn (Evie) Gruchala, Nature Recovery Volunteer Coordinator with Swansea Council.

Bluebell Walk in Clyne Woods

Monday April 29th 2024 @ 10:30 a.m.

It is necessary to book your space by following the link https://rb.gy/qxtjow . Tickets are free and available from Thursday March 28th

Meet at the free car park at the top of Mill Lane, Blackpill, SA3 5AX and take a leisurely walk through the west side of the Clyne Valley Country Park to see and record the Bluebells and any other interesting sights.

  • Note that the car park is small and we suggest car sharing
  • Children must be accompanied by an adult
  • The terrain is uneven, possibly muddy and there are steep ascents/descents, so dress appropriately.

Taking part in the City Nature Challenge is an exciting exercise using the iNaturalist app on your smartphone or tablet, using it to upload photos of any wildlife you see (some of you may have taken up the offer of training in the use of iNaturalist). The observations you submit can help inform local, national and international conservation work!

If you haven’t done so yet, you can down load iNaturalist app free from the App Store (instruction to use the app from How to use iNaturalist .docx (bnhc.org.uk) )

Results will be announced Monday, May 6th, so be sure to upload your observations by 5th May!
