European Day of The Parks 2021 - Parks: The Next Generation

The European Day of Parks is a commemorative day for Protected Areas across Europe that was launched in 1999 by the EUROPARC Federation to celebrate Protected Areas throughout Europe.

This is what our next generation of staff have to say.

Dana Williams

"As a passionate mountain walker I have always valued the benefits of being bale to access Snowdonia National Park; The adventure, peace and tranquillity, the nature and wildlife of the landscape!"

"Following the completion of my Environmental Science degree, it was a natural progression to apply for the role with SNPA as Sustainable Tourism Officer. Now i can contribute to the progression of the National Park to be a more sustainable destination, to ensure that future generations will also be able to experience the same opportunities as i have within the National Park."

Etta Trumper

"Being the Volunteer and Wellbeing Officer for SNPA is a really rewarding position to be in. I’m lucky enough to work with many fantastic volunteers who help us look after the National Park for future generations to enjoy. Volunteer support in maintaining the footpaths, planting trees and keeping the place clean of litter helps us to protect the environment and support local communities".

"I am passionate about improving accessibility so that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy Eryri’s many Special Qualities and be able to boost their sense of wellbeing from spending time in this beautiful landscape."

Lizzie Richardson

Seasonal Warden Dolgellau

"It's a varied role with lots of opportunities to learn new skills and I really enjoy working outside, as part of a small, friendly team and having the opportunity to meet local people and visitors and share with them the things I love about the area".

"As a Welsh learner I really enjoy having the opportunity to speak Welsh every day at work and I definitely have improved since the starting. Snowdonia is a very special and unique place and the park plays a very important role in protecting the communities, the environment and the landscape of the area so local people and visitors can continue to enjoy it for years to come".
