Time of Year: December – March

Throughout the winter months we’ll be hosting many tree and hedgerow planting days across the National Park. A great way to offset some of your carbon footprint and help look after our planet for years to come.

Time of Year: March – October

Volunteer Wardens aid the National Park Authority Wardens to look after Eryri, including path maintenance, litter picking and providing information to visitors.

*Unfortunately we don’t have any vacancies at present. Keep an eye out on this page, but in the meantime you may want to consider joining the Caru Eryri volunteer scheme (see above)

Voluntary Warden Scheme

Time of Year: September –January

In 2016, Eryri National Park gained its International Dark Skies Reserve status, one of only 18 in the world. Meaning that Eryri is officially one of the best places in the country for stargazing. To maintain this designation, we need a team of volunteers to assist us in monitoring the quality of the nights sky to report back to the International Dark Sky Association.

Time of Year: Spring – Autumn

Join the wonderful team of volunteers keeping the ‘door open’ at Yr Ysgwrn.

By continuing to share the timeless messages of Hedd Wyn’s home about war, culture and community, we’ll be able to welcome visitors from far and wide to Trawsfynydd.

Apply to volunteer

You can apply to volunteer by filling out the Volunteer Enquiry Form. The Snowdonia Society also offer various volunteering opportunities.
