Wildlife Watch leader wanted for Carmarthenshire

Do you live in Carmarthenshire, and particularly the Llandeilo area? Do you enjoy engaging with children in the great outdoors and imparting the joys of wildlife? Then we would love to hear from you.

WTSWW is just entering into early stage discussions with the National Trust about setting up a joint youth group at Dinefwr Park and Castle, Llandeilo. Within the estate, WTSWW owns and manages the 25 hectares of Castle Woods nature reserve, which also includes Dinefwr Castle itself, which is under the guardianship of Cadw. The National Trust owns Newton House and the parkland surrounding it.

We work closely with the National Trust on all conservation matters, including working towards a joint conservation management plan for the whole estate. Now, we’d like to work more closely on our engagement by setting up a joint local youth group to celebrate the area and its wonderful wildlife.

The hope is to be able to set up a group that meets regularly and is able to use both the resources of the WTSWW and National Trust land and buildings. The group would also be able to use the National Trust education resources and those of Wildlife Watch, the Wildlife Trust’s national junior branch.

If you think you might be interested in getting involved, and in helping to set up and run such a group, we would really love to hear from you. Please get in touch with Lizzie. Thank you!
