Gower Society Youth

We run monthly activities for 4-16 year olds around the Gower Lordship. These activities aim to introduce new ways for children to explore and engage with the Gower countryside. All activities are free, funded by The Gower Society, and based at a different location each month. They range from river dipping and butterfly hunts to woodland adventures and pirate days.

The list of Gower Society Youth activities below is updated regularly so please check for changes. All activities will also be published in the Gower Society programme and on the Gower Society web site. http://www.gowersociety.org.uk

We have started a Gower Society Youth Facebook page. It is a members only page so to see photos of the activities and what is going on so find us on Facebook and like our page. Gower Society Youth has also started an older section for 11+ called Gower Adventurers These sessions will involve children being left with a leader. The aim is then to teach the young people skills to help them become better explorers and discerning users of the countryside.

Contact Nature Days if you would like to become a member of GSY's Gower Adventurers.

Virtual mini-beast hunt -

Our nest GSY activity is a Virtual Mini Beast Hunt on Facebook live Saturday 16th May 11am.

Ever wondered what mini beasts live in your garden?

Even though we are in lockdown we can still get outside,  so join us live on the Gower Society facebook page.  The video will also be available on the Nature Days you tube channel along with the Spring stroll if you missed it last month.

If you have any questions about mini beast you would like answering then email them to me or post on the Gower Society Youth Facebook page and I will endeavour to answer them live.

Also I know it was disappointing that we did not have our annual May Day fete so I have a treat for you which I will announce on Saturday at the live event.  Or tune into the GSY facebook page and your email for a treat.
