Brecon Beacons National Park Young Ambassador Award

The Education Officers are so sad that they can’t teach you at the moment but there are so many ways that you can still learn about the Brecon Beacons National Park. We are encouraging all children to become National Park Young Ambassadors. By becoming an Ambassador, you will have learnt something new about the Brecon Beacons and you will have thought about something that you can do to make a difference.
Why not download our pack and work through the booklet?
We really do look forward to seeing your lovely pictures on Facebook and seeing what you have been getting up to.

Create a bird feeding log

This week we are thinking ahead to the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch 2021. In order to observe and count the number of birds we firstly need to welcome them into our gardens. We would like you to create a bird feeding log. Our Education Officer found a few logs whilst out on her local walk. Her children drilled holes into the logs for peanuts and fat. They smeared the logs with peanut butter and seeds. They also squeezed cheese and fruit into all the cracks and crevices. They left the logs in the garden in a place that is visible from the living room window. As the logs rot down they will be a perfect habitat for beetles and other insects.

We hope you manage to encourage birds into your garden. Why don’t you download our garden bird resources?
