Wales Nature Week is an annual celebration of nature showcasing the fantastic habitats and species of Wales.

There are many events available around Wales or you can simply get out and appreciate nature on your doorstep. It could be the start of a lifetime’s connection.

The Gwent Green Grid Partnership is busy working across Monmouthshire, Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Newport and Torfaen, hosting school workshops, planting trees and connecting community groups to the wonderful wildlife we have in Gwent.

The GGGP started Wales Nature Week with a bang on Saturday with Go Wild at Pontypool Park. The team will be at Machen Show and Maindee Festival on July 6th. You can also join the team later in the summer at Bedwellty Show and Monmouth Show on August 17th and 18th.

Wales Nature Week is an opportunity to appreciate and enjoy the nature that surrounds us. Our parks and green spaces across Gwent are basking in summer sunshine and looking full of pollinators and plants thanks to our Nature isn’t Neat meadows.

Why not be a part of Nature isn’t Neat and become a citizen scientist for an afternoon by taking part in our new Wildflower Watch project. It’s a simple 10-minute online survey monitoring wildflowers in our green spaces, which helps us better understand how we’re creating wildflower rich pollinator habitats. 

You could also stop by our new nature mural in Bailey Park, Abergavenny painted by local artist Danielle Farrington and celebrating the area’s rich biodiversity.
