Compare the local rivers at two points
The first high on the mountainside as a fast moving stream in a V shaped valley, and again as the gradient lessens and the flow reduces. As conditions permit we can take cross sectional measurements and compare flow rates.
Compare and contrast different areas of woodland
Site one is commercial forestry with coniferous species and minimal variation. Site two is broadleaved woodland managed for wildlife and conservation.
Other environmental studies
Other environmental studies are available in conjunction with the Welsh Water Education Ranger who is based at the visitor centre in Elan Valley.
