Inspiring People

People make a difference to wildlife and wildlife makes a difference to people.

There is evidence to show that by regularly experiencing nature, people can live happier, healthier lives. So part of our work is to let people of all ages be inspired by our wealth of wildlife here in Radnorshire.

Every Child Wild

Children are happier, healthier and more creative when they are connected to the natural world.  The Wildlife Trusts want every child to have access to wild experiences.

Children's freedom to roam and time spent outdoors has shrunk and with it their opportunities to discover wildlife.  In a bid to ensure every child in the UK has a chance to enjoy regular contact with nature, the Wildlife Trusts are working with parents, teachers, individuals and organisiations to share their ideas on what needs to happen to put the wild back into childhood and make every child wild.

Gilfach Nature Reserve

The Gilfach Nature Reserve is a key environmental education resource of the Radnorshire Wildlife Trust (RWT).

Many groups visit throughout the year, from walkers on the Wye Valley Walk who just pass through, to holiday makers who stay for a picnic or take part in a family fun event, to educational theme days and environmental field trips.



WildPlay creates playful opportunities for children to explore nature outdoors.

Suzie Fraser works closely with WildPlay inspiring children of all ages with the wonders of exploring, playing in and learning about the great outdoors and the wildlife found there.

Suzie is also involved with the Outdoor Learning Wales Group which has been set up in the Radnorshire and Mid Wales area to create outdoor classrooms.


Suzie Fraser uses her WildPlay skills when working with pre-school toddlers.

Storytelling is a keyskill which Suzie uses in her work.  "Fishy Tales" involved reading and fish printing to tell the salmon's epic journey from sea to source.

The children are encouraged to explore and investigate.

Suzie works with the Cylch Ti a Fi (baby & toddler) and Cylch Meithrin (nursery age) Groups in the Rhayader and Llandrindod Wells areas.



Suzie has worked with all of the schools in Radnorshire. 

Developed by Suzie, 'The RWT Big Habitat Hunt & Quiz' aims at keeping the children engaged throughout the school year looking after wildlife around their school grounds. 

Suzie often has activities arranged for families at Gilfach Nature Reserve for the school half-term weeks.


Much of the work Suzie does with schools is supported by the players of People's Postcode Lottery (PPL).  Without this income source it would be very challenging to continue doing this vital work with school age children.

The latest project Suzie has been able to deliver thanks to the players of PPL has been a bespoke range of activities called  "Small is Beautiful."  To find out more about the amazing work Suzie has been doing with the young people of Radnorshire please download the file attachments below.
