Field Trip Changes



It is with great regret that we have to tell you about 2 field trip cancellations / postponements and some alternate arrangements we are putting in place. Please can you tell anyone you know who does not tune into emails regularly  

The trip scheduled for this Saturday is planned to be on the top of the EPPYNT RANGES and given the weather forecast, the likelihood of not being able to see the landscape features and the long distance to travel in bad weather as well we have reluctantly decided to postpone this trip

Also the trip planned for Saturday, September 7th. WENVOE ORCHARDS. Has been cancelled as our planned leader is not able to lead the walk for us. This event has been postponed and will now be held in September 2014

We are therefore able to offer the EPPYNT trip on the 7th of September as an alternate date which is hopefully already reserved in your diary

We are adjusting the start time of this trip to 11:00 in Eppynt or 9:00 in Cardiff to share lifts as part of this change so the new details are as follows PLEASE NOTE NEW DATE AND TIME

On this walk, we will explore the geology and natural history of the eastern edge of the Epynt Ranges. We will look at the flood plains of ancient rivers and volcanic ash of Devonian age and evidence of shallow seas in the Silurian as well as evidence of recent glaciations.  This is a circular walk with a couple of extra side stops, a total distance of approximately 5km. This area is a fairly exposed upland environment with some uneven footpaths so please come dressed appropriately. Toilets at the visitor center are usually open. 


Meet the Epynt Ranges Conservation Centre – Pentre Dolau Honddu (SN 99307 43788). Please bring a packed lunch

OR 

Meet at the BGS Cardiff offices at 9:00 to share lifts north. See http://www.bgs.ac.uk/contacts/sites/cardiff/ for details 

Please email Andy Kendall via info@cardiffnaturalists.org.uk to say that you will be meeting there so we know to expect you or call me on the details below to discuss arrangements
