The Snowdonia National Park Authority is marking Wales Sustainability week (May 17th to 23rd) with a series of events, including a number of guided walks on International Biodiversity Day - May 22nd.
Such walks are designed to highlight the various plants and animals living in the area, while providing those donning men's outdoor clothing
or women's outdoor clothing
with a chance to enjoy the rugged scenery of the national park.
Among these are some easy walks, such as Llyn Tegid to Llangower, lasting two hours, while harder ones include the Clywedog Path walk and the Penmachno walk, starting in the quarry of that name.
Starting in the morning and lasting for up to five hours, these walks all cover rough ground and those taking part are advised to bring their walking boots
The biodiversity of Snowdonia has seen the area studied extensively, with one example being Charles Darwin carrying out research in the Ogwen valley in the 19th century.
