In response to the Government’s current regulations concerning the COVID-19 virus, the MWT shop and office will be closed until further notice

During these special isolation measures, MWT has had to furlough several of its staff; we are trying to maintain our services the best we can with a very limited team working from home. The answerphone on 01938 555654 may be checked occasionally, but we recommend contacting staff by email during the closure; you can find our staff here: staff profiles, alternatively you can email:

Unfortunately, as we are unable access and maintain them, to ensure the safety of our visitors, ALL our nature reserves are now closed until further notice. All volunteering, local group sessions and events are postponed until further notice.

Please also note that during this time, we will not be able to process membership renewals and joining applications in the usual way - new member packs and membership cards will be sent out as soon as we are able to return to the office. Gift memberships are not currently available.

Now, more than ever, we are relying on the generosity of our supporters to help us protect and promote the wildlife of Montgomeryshire. Your membership is greatly appreciated and we ask you to bear with us through this challenging time – thank you.

Seek solace in nature

We know that people who spend time in nature are happier and healthier, but it can be difficult to know how to do this safely in the current climate. It's really important to stay active and exercise where you can. This can be as simple as doing yoga in your own back garden! Just a bit of time every day spent in nature can help relieve stress and improve mental wellbeing. There are a few suggestions below. Also check out our social media outlets, where we are posting regular activities, quizzes and other inspiration to connect you with nature.
