Cymdeithas Eryri Snowdonia Society (CESS) is a registered charity delivering conservation and campaigning to protect the incredible landscapes of Eryri (Snowdonia) and enable their responsible enjoyment, now and for future generations. Through our programme Helping Hands and its many volunteers we deliver practical help to maintain footpaths, clear litter and control invasive species. We help to restore nature through our work in partnership on habitats and species from shoreline to mountain summit.
We also use our independent voice to respond to significant planning proposals and we contribute to national and local consultations concerning the future of our valuable environment and cultural and linguistic heritage.
