You are invited to get Out There into the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in 2014 to make the most of the fantastic activities on offer.
The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority has produced a new Out There booklet giving families tons of ideas for low-cost organised events as well as outdoor challenges that cost nothing.
The bilingual booklet has been given to every primary school pupil in the county and is available online at www.pembrokeshirecoast.org.uk/events.
Out There features events out and about around the Park’s fantastic coast and countryside, as well as activities at the National Park Authority’s visitor attractions, Carew Castle and Tidal Mill, Castell Henllys Iron Age Village and Oriel y Parc Gallery and Visitor Centre in St Davids.
Events run from the summer holidays through to October half term.
National Park Discovery Ranger Gayle Lister said: “Pembrokeshire people are so lucky to have the UK’s only truly coastal National Park on our doorstep.
“As a Park Authority we work to encourage as many people as possible to enjoy the natural benefits of the Park so we offer activities for everyone, from baby to Bampy.
“Our Out There booklet gives Pembrokeshire families an easy guide to low-cost activities and events come rain or shine in this incredible place.”
The events range from rockpooling on one of the Park’s beautiful beaches to learning about bats as they set out on their night-time journeys, as well as traditional National Park pastimes such as circular walks or investigating the area’s rich history.
The booklet also sets outdoor challenges for children as part of celebrations to mark the 100th anniversary since the death of naturalist John Muir, known as the founder of National Parks.
Challenges include going on a ‘Small Five’ safari – finding five small creatures living close by, or opening a mini National Park in your garden or yard and offering guided tours to family and friends.
Full details of summer events run by the National Park Authority are also available in Coast to Coast online at www.pembrokeshirecoast.org.uk/coasttocoast.
