environmental commitment

B-Active@Rhoscolyn recognises the very special nature of the Anglesey coast and is committed to introducing people to it in a way that preserves and enhances the environment.We are proud to be associated with the North Wales Environmental Charter Group and to have signed up to the Environmental Charter (below) and to be a member of the Institute for Outdoor Learning.

B-Active integrates our environmental values into all of our work, and is also able to offer specific environmental activities in association with our partners including: wildlife walks and treasure hunts, canoeing safaris, beach combing, ‘extreme’ rock pooling, and sea level explore sessions. In 2014 we will be offering ‘paddle with a puffin’ and paddle with a porpoise’ sessions in summer months.
