The first ever Hen Harrier Day Wales takes place this year on Saturday 18 July 2020 in Snowdonia, from 12-5pm.
This is earlier than the usual August date for a Hen Harrier Day event but then hen harriers are killed on grouse moors throughout the year so it’s great that attention is being drawn to it with an additional event in July.
Hen Harrier Day Wales is being organised by Ian Cooper (a Snowdonia-based mountain leader) and Julian Cartwright, another mountain leader. Full details of this event and other Hen Harrier Day events planned for across the UK can be found on the newly-created Hen Harrier Day website.
The event location is Plas Y Brenin, the National Outdoor Centre in the Snowdonia National Park. As this is an indoor event, numbers are limited due to health & safety / fire regs etc. The organisers are offering places on a ticket-booking system and those tickets will become available tomorrow (Sunday 15 March) via Eventbrite HERE
