Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Cambrian Wildwood. Volunteers are invaluable in helping the project to happen, and the project provides a range of interesting volunteering opportunities. The main way to get involved is with practical tasks on site at Bwlch Corog – we hold one work day per month, generally on the last Saturday of the month. If you are interested in helping with other aspects of our work, for example office type work, then please contact us to discuss possibilities.
To receive regular announcements about the work days and other volunteering opportunities, please contact us to ask to be on the email mailing list.
