Volunteer Opportunities

As part of the Gwyl Taf project, a friendly group of volunteers meet at Pontygwaith Nature Reserve most Tuesday afternoons (timings of these events often vary due to seasonality and weather so make sure you check out the Volunteer Group  on Facebook for specific details about our volunteer events).  These events are aimed around reclaiming the bracken swamped area for use by the local communities as a nature reserve, orchard and area for more general outdoors recreation.

No experience is necessary; all you need to have is a willingness to have a go. If you are interested in helping out, get in touch.
