Coronavirus announcement - updated 11/01/2021

MWT continues to follow Welsh Government guidance and restrictions, so our Welshpool shop and office remain closed, with all staff working from home, where possible. The answerphone on 01938 555654 will be checked when possible, but we still recommend contacting staff by email; you can find details on the staff, by clicking here, or you can email

As the situation with the new strain of Covid-19 continutes to worsen, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend all volunteering until the end of January 2021, when this will be reviewed. We understand that our supporters may find this disappointing, but, for the time being, we feel that it is the right thing to do. This is not about what we can do, but what we should do. We look forward to seeing our volunteers again when the situation improves.

The majority of our nature reserves are open during this time, but some restrictions may still apply on some sites – please check our nature reserves pages before you visit and follow the current Welsh Government restrictions. We also ask that visitors adhere to social distancing and socialising guidance at all times.

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.
