Pond-dipping, bug-hunting and bird-spotting are just some of the nature-based activities on offer at Forest Farm this weekend as its annual Summer Open Day returns to introduce families to some of the wildlife at the 150-acre local nature reserve.

Home to Cardiff’s team of Community Rangers, the free event on Saturday 18th June (10am-3pm) is centred around the Forest Farm Conservation Centre, and will also include a free to enter dog show, and the chance to try your hand at fly casting for fish or pick up some wildlife photography tips.

Cabinet Member for Culture, Parks and Events, Cllr Jennifer Burke-Davies, said: “The open day promises to be a really good family day out and a great opportunity for curious minds of all ages to learn more about the diverse species that call the reserve home.”

To join the fun, go to Forest Farm Conservation Centre, Forest Farm Road, Whitchurch, Cardiff, CF14 7JJ.
