What support is Coed Lleol (Small Woods Wales) offering to people during Covid-19?

During this period of physical distancing, we are helping people across Wales improve their wellbeing by connecting to nature in these ways:

  • We're running free online 6-week courses. Come learn with us about woodlands, nature and wellbeing.
  • We’ve launched a new YouTube channel to share weekly nature videos made by our expert Woodland Leaders and Mentors.
  • We’ve been making Activity Guides in English and Welsh to support you in doing our YouTube video activities
  • Our local project groups are running across Wales. Contact a Project Officer in your area to join us.
  • We’ve been supporting a volunteer group in Mid Wales called Heart Mind Body to get the word out about their free online wellbeing activities

What do Woodland Managers in Wales need to know during Covid-19?

If you feel there is a danger that you may be challenged while going about your necessary tasks and duties in your woodland, the Small Woodland Owners Letter of Comfort may be helpful to explain the need for the work you are doing.

For more Covid-19 related information for Woodland Managers, please visit Covid-19 news.

We are running a number of online events to support Small Woods Members, including online talks and virtual woodland visits. Please visit the woodland management events page for more details.
