Join Buglife Cymru and Swansea University’s Biodiversity Officer and help us collect Yellow Rattle seed for future meadow creation at Swansea Bay Campus and other locations on the B-Line.

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.

The work of NPT B-Lines has been made possible by funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Mae B-Lines Castell-nedd Port Talbot, Buglife Cymru yn brosiect 3 blynedd, sy’n gweithio gyda chymunedau a phartneriaid i adfer a chreu cynefinoedd llawn blodau gwyllt o fewn y rhwydwaith B-Lines, gan gefnogi peillwyr yn cynnwys rhywogaethau sy’n brin yn genedlaethol, fel y Wenynen gorniog a’r Gardwenynen feinlais.

Mae gwaith B-Lines C-nPT yn bosibl diolch i ariannu gan Gronfa Dreftadaeth Y Loteri Genedlaethol.
