Education, participation and volunteering
Primary schools: In 2005 Cemaes primary school won the national Ward Cup for their red squirrel project work with the Trust. The children acted as ambassadors, each visiting another local school on the island and teaching their peers about red squirrels.
We have produced Keystage education material for use by parents and teachers and which are provided free. Contact us for a pack, download the PDF (36MB), or to arrange a school visit and activities.
Community Groups: We work in partnership with a range of community groups including Parys Training, the Anglesey & Gwynedd Recovery Organisation (AGRO), National Trust, BASC, North Wales Wildlife Trust and Forestry Commission Wales and offer a range of voluntary and participation activities including:
– Nest box and feeder workshops
– Red squirrel monitoring
– Squirrel art classes

– Guided walks at Newborough & Pentraeth

Please contact us if you or your local group would like us to arrange an event for you.
