Come and join the CARU ERYRI team!
“Caru Eryri / Care for Snowdonia” is run jointly by Eryri National Park, The Outdoor Partnership, Snowdonia Society and National Trust.
It is a volunteering programme that provides opportunities to volunteer in the outdoors, making a practical difference in the National Park.
We organise shifts at set locations that are led by a qualified/experienced leader. Volunteers join small groups, enjoying a led day out on mountain paths, and positively impact on the natural environment; so a chance to have a good day out in the mountains and do something good in the process!
On a typical shift the group walks a set route, led by a guide. Just come ready to be outdoors for the day, in suitable clothing, and bring a packed lunch and drink.
The aim is to provide a presence in popular areas and paths on Yr Wyddfa, and other popular places within the Park, where we can advise visitors and clear any rubbish found. We provide all the equipment needed for this.
You don’t need to be an experienced walker to join, but you will need to be able to walk along varied paths and terrain and be on your feet for around 5 hours.
All the walks are all low level walks, and the pace is leisurely.
Shifts are arranged on Friday/Saturday/Sunday every week, and are typically 9:00-15:00.
Volunteers can sign up to any shift they want to through our sign-up system, so you can commit as much or as little as you want!
We run shifts at various locations: Llanberis, Ogwen, Nant Gwynant and Abergwyngregyn.
Anyone over 18 is welcome, and will need to find their own way to the location of the shift.
We have a Facebook page which provides more information: Caru Eryri – Home | Facebook
