Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust in Penclacwydd

Nia joined Gower College students at the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust in Penclacwydd

Nia Griffith swapped the hullabaloo of the House of Commons for an even wilder environment to share an outdoor learning experience with a group of A-level students.

Nia joined Gower College students at the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust National Wetland Centre Wales in Penclacwydd, Llanelli, for a day of pond dipping, monitoring wetland birds and looking at the issues involved in managing wetland plants.

It formed part of a visit by the Gower College students, which had been organised as a key part of their A-level biology work.

But the event as a whole was also part of the Every Child Outdoors initiative, which involves more than 50 sites hosting visits from their local school and MP, as part of a UK-wide initiative to get every child access to outdoor learning experiences. The RSPB, the Field Studies Council and the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust have been collaborating on the project.
