Keep reading to find out how you can be involved and check back every Wednesday for more voluntourism opportunities.

Snowdonia National Park, sitting on the west coast of Wales, is a working and living national park. There are more than 26,000 full-time residents of the land. Both residents and volunteers work year-round to help maintain the space. Conservation volunteer work on a weekend or weekday and last about a half a day to two days.

There are several outdoorsy activities to get your hands dirty with volunteering at Snowdonia. Volunteers clear invasive plant species, maintain hiking trails, and clear out litter and other things that should not be in a natural environment. If you have a green thumb you would like to indulge, there is wildlife gardening and tree planting available.

No experience is needed for volunteering, they will provide training in all matters of the work, and volunteering is open to all people. However it is good to know that a certain level of physicality is a good idea for volunteering here as well as a willingness to be outdoors in all climates.
