At the Wye and Usk Foundation we are passionate about rivers! We provide exciting, enjoyable learning opportunities and educational activities in and about rivers for all ages and for all kinds of groups.

While schools are closed during the COVID-19 outbreak, Colette Mooney (our Head of Education, also known as the Salmon Lady!) is helping families by providing active, creative, innovative learning opportunities to enable children to find out all about our amazing rivers and their wildlife.

She will be posting short, interactive videos periodically along with an activity sheet (don’t worry grown ups there’s an answer sheet too!).

Use the links below to find the videos and download the resources!
