These workshops are primarily aimed at Mountain Leaders and Instructors or trainees working towards those awards. Anyone working outside with, or leading, groups in the hills or mountains of the UK should however, find these workshops of interest. We generally attract a like-minded keen group of people who get along with each other giving the day a fun feeling in which to learn.
This workshop is eligible for MTA, AMI, Baiml and BMG CPD points
Nature of Snowdonia - Environmental Workshop - Cwm Idwal
Whilst the workshops are themed seasonally we will respond to whatever the environment and weather throw at us on the day of the workshop. Key questions for the day might include;
- Why is the geology here so complex?
- Did the ice really shape these mountians?
- Geomorphology - what's that all about then?
- How special are lichens?
- How do you indentify plants in the winter?
- Can you tell us a story?
You will need to dress for the weather and expect to be 'on the hill' for about five hours. Bring a packed lunch. You will find a digital camera and/or a smart phone, pen/pencil and notebook handy too.
