Capel Manor college come to Snowdonia every Spring to give students hands on experience of countryside managment through work arranged by the Snowdonia Society, this year they returned to take part in Rhododendron control and footpath maintenance. Here's what they said about their week:
"The whole experience of working in the Park was excellent - both staff and students really appreciated the work that was laid on for us. The students described this as the best week in their whole college course. It was also a real honour to be invited back to continue the good work at the Hostel and to be involved in the footpath work on Snowdon – this is a big thing for us and our college so thank you!"
