Our Snowdon Tidy project has been short listed for the Park Protector Award by the Campaign for National Parks (CNP). As part of the Snowdon Tidy project, the Snowdonia Society works in partnership with a range of organisations to work towards achieving a meaningful reduction in litter on all the main paths from the base to the summit of Snowdon. We work towards this goal by:
- Keeping Snowdon as clean as possible; hopefully if there is less litter then less litter will be dropped.
- Raising awareness about the problems associated with litter
- Using GPS data loggers to map the location and volume of litter allowing us to monitor the progress of our work as well as identifying litter hotspots
- Investigating further ways of inspiring positive behaviour change.
“We’re delighted to have this fantastic project and the hard work of our volunteers recognised by being short listed for the Park Protector Award” said Mary-Kate Jones, Project Manager for the Snowdonia Society. “Our volunteers take to the slopes of Snowdon on regular workdays to keep this iconic mountain tidy! This project would not be possible without their hard work.” If you’d like to get involved, please do get in touch.
Details of the winning project will be announced in October.
