Other workshops planned for this winter and spring are small mammal surveys and looking for signs of mammals, spring tree identification, and identification and uses of wild herbs and other plants. Let us know if you are interested in any of these and we will tell you when we have a date.
All volunteer sessions and workshops take place at Dolydd Gobaith, Pen-y-Garnedd, SY10 0AW. The what3words for the car park are awake.oxidation.initiated.

Plans for 2023 include almost wild camping, building a bird hide, using our new micro-baler, more wildlife surveys, and art and nature sessions for children. We are also developing an education pack for school classes and other groups. Do get in touch if you are a teacher or group leader and would be interested in discussing how this can be of use.

New volunteers are always welcome to help with planting, young tree maintenance, hedge laying, strimming, or scything. We could also really use the help of a retired accountant or bookkeeper!
