What to expect
At Mawddach Valley we need to keep on top of the conifer trees that keep appearing. If left to mature, these non-native trees would take over areas of the reserve and prevent specialist wildlife from being able to survive. Volunteers will be directly helping to improve the conditions for nightjars and tree pipits by helping us cut down the seedlings up by hand. If we used heavy machinery for the job there's a chance we might disturb the important wildlife we are working to protect!
