CARING FOR THE WYE AND USK:
Misha Pedersen from the Wye and Usk Foundation talks about its work and support for members of Mind's Talgarth outreach, to whom John Muir awards will be presented.
Wednesday 24 October 2018, Ysgol y Mynydd Du, Hay Road, Talgarth, 7pm
£5 (Friends / Members £2)
Misha Pedersen, senior education officer with the Wye and Usk Foundation, will talk about the work of the Wye and Usk Foundation and, in particular, its partnership with members of Brecon and District Mind's Talgarth outreach. Over the past twelve months they have taken part in the John Muir Award Scheme to explore and conserve the rivers around Talgarth.
Misha has led sessions on Thursday mornings including pond dipping in the River Ennig, conservation with the local wildlife trust, environmental education and sensory exploration of the natural environment. These have been partly funded by a grant from Brecon Rotary Club.
At this event around ten of the participants will receive a personalised certificate from the John Muir Trust to mark the completion of their journey. The certificates will be presented at Ysgol y Mynydd Du, Talgarth, where members of the public will be able to learn more about Brecon and District Mind, the Wye and Usk Foundation and the John Muir Trust through displays.
The Friends support the work of Brecon and District Mind and raise awareness of mental health issues in and around Brecon, Crickhowell, Talgarth and Hay-on-Wye. They are open to everyone and holds talks, walks, social activities and fund-raising events.
