Our Actif Woods Wales programme focuses on woodland health and wellbeing activities with and for people:
Location: Dowlais Community centre, 10am – 12noon. Activities include woodcraft, wildlife walks, foraging, charcoal making, campfire cooking, with gentle exercise to improve fitness and wellbeing. See poster below.
Location: Cyfartha Park, Merthyr. Meet outside the Bothy at 10am (next to the car park and greenhouses).
See posters and contact details below for more information.
Activities include a 12 week woodland programme, seasonal community days (four a year), environmental volunteer days, school activities and one-off events. 2018 activities:
Actif Woods and the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales have been successful in a joint funding bid from the Rural Development Fund. We have funding for 3 years to work specifically on four sites within the rural wards of Merthyr Tydfil – Bedlinog, Vaynor, Bryngolau and Gellideg. The aim of the project is to involve the whole community in using the sites and for the sites themselves to be improved and hopefully designated as LNR’s (Local Nature Reserves).
Have a look at our Facebook page for regular updates and photos from the groups and activities!
