9 Adder stone trails.pdf
The idea for this activity came from contact by concerned members of the public, wishing to raise awareness of adders on a popular beach in Pembrokeshire. Signs are not always possible, but engaging local children in a fun awareness raising activity can be very effective. All it needs is some paint, some pebbles, a local authority or landowner who is willing to host the stones, and a willing group. We worked with schools, scouts/guides, and other community groups. The objective is to get members of the public to find the stones, share their pictures on social media, such as Facebook/Twitter, and re-hide the stone for others to find, spreading positive adder awareness in an engaging way. This activity works for all age groups – why not ask local community groups to get involved and create a trail on your adder site?
