The Snowdonia Ecosystem Project carries out regular practical conservation volunteer workdays to help enhance and maintain the natural beauty of the National Park. From toads and trees to footpaths and fungi our project is an ideal way of getting directly involved in the conservation and management of Snowdonia National Park, whilst having fun and meeting new (and familiar) faces.

You can volunteer as an individual or with a group (see below), every workday, once a month or just once a year.

Snowdonia is your national park – come and help to ensure its survival in these changing times… If you don’t who will?

Our volunteers enjoy a regular programme of conservation workdays which take place come rain or shine, at all times of the year. Whether you enjoy energetic activities such as clearing Rhododendron ponticum and maintaining Snowdon’s well worn footpaths, or prefer to hone/improve your identification skills by carrying out mammal surveys or learning the characteristics of different habitats, our project has something for you.

No experience is needed as full training will be given on each workday. Fancy getting involved? Contact Owain or Mary-Kate:

The Snowdonia Ecosystem Project is supported by NRW and CAE the National Parks sustainable development fund.

We organise conservation workdays for groups of volunteers throughout the year, across the Snowdonia National Park and with a range of themes. We have worked with NatWest Bank, North Wales Training, Branchlines, Coleg Menai, Llandrillo College, CAIS and other community groups to deliver a new learning and team-building experience.

We are always eager to forge new partnerships, so please do get in touch for more information.

The Snowdonia Society can offer single or multiple workdays undertaking tasks from litter picking to gorse clearance, footpath maintenance to dry-stone walling. Each workday takes place in the Snowdonia National Park, often in partnership with other organisations, accessing a multitude of skilled professionals and stunning locations.

With over 20 years of experience in conducting volunteer workdays, the Snowdonia Society has the networks and experience to deliver safe and rewarding volunteering opportunities that help to protect and enhance the natural environment for people and wildlife.

Our young carer’s and young adult carers would like to say thank you for the recent volunteering day they spent with you at Bryn Gwynant lopping the rhododendrons.  They enjoyed the whole day – lopping the Rhododendron and getting really stuck in and working as a team to do some good. They have asked us to arrange another day with you!”
