With support from Natural Resources Wales (NRW) and Welsh Government, Severn Estuary Partnership (SEP) launched Discover the Severn in July 2018. A community-focused project designed to connect – or reconnect – coastal communities with the coastline of the Severn Estuary to promote healthier lifestyles, improved access to nature and nature-based learning and personal well-being.
The project was based in three communities in south Wales; Castleland in Barry, Grangetown in Cardiff and Pilgwenlly in Newport.
There is a wealth of opportunity for recreation along the Severn Estuary from water sports to history walks, from rock-pooling to landscape photography. Discover the Severn aimed to promote access and recreation along the Severn Estuary in a number of ways including delivering presentations, coordinating beach cleans, hosting nature sessions, developing bilingual ‘Activity Packs’ and more! By delivering fun ways for locals to learn about the value of our estuary, it is hoped that the project will pass on skills and tools to help protect and respect our local environment for future generations.
The Project ended in December 2019 but all of the different activities produced in the Discover the Severn Project are here on the website! We encourage you to have a browse of our activities and get out there to Discover the Severn for yourself!
