Join Dynamic Dunescapes and Swansea University in celebrating the launch of the new Crymlyn Burrows Dune Gateway sculpture. Explore with Plantlife, Natural Resources Wales, the Southeast Wales Biodiversity Records Centre (SEWBReC) and Buglife on 16 July for a day of celebration as we cut the ribbon on a new sculpture installation at the burrows. Designed with local input the aim of the sculpture is to celebrate the diversity of plants and wildlife that can be discovered on the site.
All day: From 10:00 to the end of the event join us by:
10:30 – 12:00: Discover the dunes with site Warden Ben Sampson and local volunteers. Join the team for a general wildlife walk to discover the Crymlyn Burrows SSSI – learn about how sand dunes form, what plants and wildlife call them homes and what work is being done to conserve the burrows.
12:00 – 13:00: We’ve left some time for you to eat lunch, relax in the sun or make some more wildlife recordings. Although there are shops on site the offering is limited in summertime so please bring your lunch with you.

13:30 – 15:00: Discover the pollinators of the dunes and learn more about the B-lines project with Ai-Lin Kee from Nature on your Doorstep. This session is being delivered as part of Buglife Cymru’s Neath Port Talbot B-Lines Project– a 3-yr project, working with communities and partners to restore and create wildflower-rich habitat within the B-Lines network, supporting pollinators including nationally rare species such as the Long-horned Bee and the Shrill Carder Bee.
