Volunteer with the National Park Authority

The National Park Authority is keen to encourage people to get involved in the conservation of the Park and the management of footpaths and bridleways.

Voluntary Wardens installed the new steps at Marloes Sands.

By getting involved in the work, people learn to understand and to value the National Park more – that is an important result.

If people volunteer regularly, it helps them to keep a bit fitter – another one of our objectives, and of course, working with local people especially, helps us to connect with our local communities and understand what is important and what problems and issues concern them. Finally, it is enjoyable and one of our key targets is ‘enjoyment’.

There are a number of ways to get involved

The National Park Authority is looking for individuals and groups to join its new Pathways project.

  • If you would like to become a Pathways volunteer contact Tom Iggleden by emailing or call 07866 771190.
  • If you are a group or organisation interested in exploring how Pathways can help you achieve your goals contact Tom Moses by emailing or call 07773 788205.

We work with National Park Voluntary Wardens, a group developed and managed by the National Park Rangers who work in each of the Ranger areas.

Alternatively, you could join the Friends of the National Park. This is an independent group who manage their own work parties but who work closely with the Authority on agreed projects.

If you are part of a group or organisation that would like to take part in volunteering, we may be able to suggest a suitable task for your group and provide tools and equipment so that you can do the job in a safe way.

If you are in a local group you could even take on management of some of your local paths as the Newport Paths Group have done. We have worked with groups from The Bank of England, the Army and the Princes Trust.

Finally, if you are a local community group, why not adopt your local beach or section of coast? Keep Wales Tidy coordinates around 30 local groups who take responsibility for extra beach cleans and some have become very influential and active.

So if you love this Park and want to get involved in looking after it, please email or call 01646 624847.
