If you are looking for a fun day out for all the family, head to Pontllanfraith on Saturday 11th June where people of all ages can enjoy a wild day out!
Go Wild! is a popular wildlife family fun day where visitors will get the chance to meet otters, hedgehogs, bats, owls, butterflies, moths, reptiles and amphibians, as well as discovering how much we rely on biodiversity to provide our own creature comforts in the home and outdoors.
With lots of hands on activities, ideas to explore our fabulous countryside and eco-tourism opportunities, this is an event not to be missed.
The fun starts at 11.00am at the Sir Harold Finch Memorial Park in Pontllanfraith (within the grounds of the CCBC council offices) near Blackwood.
The event is organised by Caerphilly county borough council and funded by the Valleys Regional Park Heart and Soul of Wales campaign.
This year, Go Wild is all about the natural environment and the services it provides us. We are lucky in the valleys of south Wales, you can see green hills from virtually every town and village, and 80% of Caerphilly county borough is classed as open countryside. In our natural environment, all living things (otherwise known as "biodiversity") are intricately linked and interact together to make our planet habitable.
There will also be locally produced refreshments on sale, including Hapus Iice Cream and Penrhiw Farm burgers.
