Capita Symonds' ecologists host a Day of Discovery

2 June 2010

Ecologists at Capita Symonds’ Glamorgan partnership are hosting a public Wildlife Discovery Day in partnership with Bridgend County Borough Council on Saturday 05 June (1pm).

The event, which takes place at the Rockwool Insulation Centre, Pencoed is part of Wales Biodiversity Week (05-13 June) as well as being a ‘BBC Breathing Spaces’ event. It also has added importance as 2010 is the UN International Year of Biodiversity.

Sarah Simons, Environment Team Leader, Capita Symonds Glamorgan, says: “We warmly invite everyone in the area to come along to participate in the many events taking place on the day. You can come along for a couple of hours or make a day of it and bring a picnic as it will be an ideal day out for families and for children to discover their local wildlife.

“Glamorgan’s ecologists will be leading several events and hosting a stand with lots of activities for children. Sam Saunders, our bat specialist, will be bringing in bats for a meet and greet while our botanist Becky East will be leading a plant walk around the local common,” she adds.
