Getting into National Parks
To celebrate our 75th anniversary we are encouraging everyone to ‘Get into National Parks’ and one of our trustees is taking this to heart.
Irene Evison, our Vice Chair for Wales, is cycling at least 75 miles through each of the Welsh National Parks taking in some of the most beautiful landscapes in Britain. Along the way she will be talking to 75 people who visit, live, work and take care of National Parks to find out why they matter to them and why they feel it is important to conserve National Parks for future generations.
Irene will also be raising money to ensure that our vital work to protect these iconic Welsh landscapes will continue into the next 75 years. Please help us to continue to protect the National Parks of Wales by supporting Irene. Whatever you can afford to give will make a difference.
