Outdoor Health 

Connecting people with the outdoors

Ecodyfi and Coed Lleol (Small Woods Wales) have teamed up to help our community get active outdoors in the Dyfi Biosphere. We run free outdoor activities for anyone who wants to boost their health and wellbeing, and we're working to improve access to the natural environment for everyone.

 

​Pick one of the options below to find out more and get involved with the Trywydd Iach | Outdoor Health project.

 

Outdoor Activities

Spending more time outdoors in nature can improve your mental and physical health.​​ We offer and can connect you to free professionally led outdoor activities near you, such as:

  • Woodland conservation & crafts

  • Habitat management 

  • Group walks

  • Gardening sessions

  • Spending time with animals

If you'd like to take part in free outdoor activities to improve your health and wellbeing, please click the button below to register with us. Project Officer Sian Davies will then be in touch to discuss what might suit you and to connect you to what's going on near where you live.

Active Travel

The Dyfi Biosphere has a beautiful and unique natural environment. We want to make sure everyone can access it.

 

We're working with other local organisations and groups to improve opportunities for people to walk, run, cycle and even ride horses more, and we’d love to hear from you about what would help you do that. Get in touch with Project Officer Miriam Davies to get involved.

 

Covid-19

Due to coronavirus pandemic restrictions, there are times when we aren't able to run our outdoor activities for health and wellbeing. Get in touch with us to check if an activity is running and follow us on social media for updates.

 

We understand that these times can be when you need support the most, and suggest you consider joining in the online activities below.

Heart Mind Body is a community led project that Coed Lleol (Small Woods Wales) and Ecodyfi support, in liaison with Trywydd Iach. It aims to help, reach out and improve wellbeing in these unprecedented times.
