Digital Unknown Wales 2020 – an evening to celebrate nature in Wales!

The event will take place on Thursday 29th October 2020, 6.30 – 9pm

Our annual Unknown Wales event has gone digital!

In partnership with the Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales, we bring you the 10th Unknown Wales event! Please join us for an evening of talks about Welsh nature – especially some of the lesser known and hidden bits.

 

As it’s our 10th anniversary we bring you a special message from naturalist, Iolo Williams.

The chair of the North Wales Wildlife Trust, Roger Thomas will be asking how we keep Homo sapiens off The International Union for Conservation of Nature's Red List and ask what has happened to our wildlife over the last 10 years.

We visit bogs in Carmarthenshire with the Council’s Biodiversity Officer, Isobel Macho and find out the results of the Brought to the Surface freshwater snails project from Amgueddfa Cymru’s Ben Rowson and Harry Powell.

Listen to quick-fire talks by museum scientists working on the museum’s natural sciences collections and get a chance to ask them about their scientific work.

Don’t miss the nature quiz during the break where you can compete to win a nature-related prize!

There will also be a family nature quiz and #NatureOnYourDoorstep photo competition!
