Help protect Snowdonia's fragile natural wonders 

Snowdonia's rangers are constantly working to maintain the pathways, now, after completing their most extensive review of the landscape to date, they urgently need your help to get repairs underway on two and a half miles of the path network.

Inspired by trees at Ickworth 

Dee Gathorne-Hardy's love of trees began in the tropical climes of Malaysia. Today he works with other rangers and volunteers managing the woodland in the grounds of this 18th century mansion. They use woodchip to power the estate's biomass boiler.

What do rangers do in winter? 

Winter is a time when much of our wildlife is dormant. It’s also when many of our rangers are at their busiest, carrying out vital conservation work.
