This March and April Coed Lleol (Small Woods Wales) are hosting nine local Spring events to celebrate our thriving Actif Woods Wales programme. Taking place across Wales, these free events will include woodland workshops, tasty campfire cooking, inspiring stories of change and more. There will also be an opportunity for individuals and community organisations to share ideas and help shape the future of woodland health and wellbeing activities locally. Activities will vary in each local area, and may cover the themes of health and wellbeing, woodland skills and woodland conservation. Where possible activities will be co-led by Coed Lleol staff, partner organisations and existing Actif Woods Wales participants: Read more.

Working with Nature Project

This project aims to engage with local communities and residents of Neath Port Talbot encouraging greater levels of interaction with their local wild spaces with the goal of improving employability, health and well-being and environmental conditions. We run engagement events (e.g. bush-craft, nature walks, tree identification, training etc.) and volunteer task days to increase awareness and values for our wilderness.

For information on getting involved in volunteering or joining some of the engagement events, contact Neil on n.hinds@npt.gov.uk
