Walking fans heading to the Snowdonia National Park this summer are being offered the chance to take part in a bee keeping workshop.
The park is teaming up with the Welsh Bee Keepers Association (WBKA) and the Centre for Alternative Land Use at Bangor University to put on a workshop on June 10th.
People who take a course with the WBKA can also benefit from grants from the national park which can be used towards the cost of buying a traditional type of beehive.
The workshop will be held at Abergwyngregyn and will be free to attend.
"By encouraging more people to keep bees, we are also strengthening the biodiversity within the Park and educating people about the importance of preserving our wildlife," said head of agriculture and conservation for Snowdonia National Park Rhys Owen.
Visitors to Snowdonia feeling energetic may want to pull on their walking boots
and tackle Snowdon. The peak boasts a brand new visitor's centre, which opened in June 2009.
