The front line of protecting Eryri

The Eryri National Park is watched over by a dedicated team of wardens, each looking after a particular area within the Park.

The wardens have an interesting and varied role, which includes advising the public on safe and responsible use of the countryside, liaising with landowners to help with visitor management and helping schools and community groups with education and conservation projects.

The National Park Wardens

Working alongside the Estate Staff, wardens help make the National Park more accessible to the public by managing the public rights of way network, permissive paths and ‘Open Country’. This work involves erecting stiles, gates and waymarkers along with resurfacing paths and general maintenance work.

Eryri National Park Wardens have an in depth knowledge of the geology and wildlife within their area.

They provide an important service for visitors, imparting valuable advice to walkers, climbers and tourists on how to stay safe and enjoy all that’s on offer in the Snowdonia National Park.
