Experience and Education
The Elan Valley provides impressive experience and education opportunities in a unique setting.
The Elan Links scheme will provide opportunities for people to experience the Elan Valley through volunteering, as well as education and training.
We will increase the opportunities for people to experience and contribute to the Elan Valley as volunteers.
We will provide a series of training courses offering introductory and progression opportunities to learn in woodlands and the wider landscape.
We will deliver 20 bespoke activity days each year, particularly aimed at people who would benefit from help to access the Elan Valley.
We will encourage people from the Birmingham area to connect with the Elan Valley, offering packages of accommodation and other support.
We will develop activities and events, as part of an outreach education programme, to engage schools and communities locally and in Birmingham to promote the Elan Valley’s water story.
Throughout the scheme, there are lots of opportunities for you to get involved including:
- Guided walks and activity leaders
- Event support and marshalling
- Photography and filming
