Bolgoed Quarry is a disused sandstone quarry consisting mainly of open canopied, deciduous woodland of Ash, and Birch with a ground layer of Ivy, Bramble and dense gorse scrub. Ground water seeps from the quarry strata and is locally important for lower plants, such as Mosses and Liverworts. A range of woodland birds inhabit the site such as Great Tit, Tawny Owl, Nuthatch and Treecreeper and the wetter areas makes it ideal for wintering woodcock.

The Wildlife Trust work to conserve wildlife and enrich our experience of the environment, inspiring people about the natural world and promoting sustainable living. There are 47 local Wildlife Trusts across the whole of the UK, the Isle of Man & Alderney; they work for an environment rich in wildlife for everyone. The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales is fourth largest in the UK, covering from Cardiff and Caerphilly in the east to Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire in the west, and include four of the west Wales islands amongst the 90 or so nature reserves.

Training and Volunteering Opportunities

Volunteers are an integral part of the structure and running of the Trust. Volunteers take part in activities within the Trust contributing skills, talents, experience and time, which often expand the skills-base of the Trust. They also help to contain costs, raise funds and help raise awareness with people through the local groups.
Volunteers can be any age and can be experienced or inexperienced. Whether you are looking for training and experience to pursue a career in conservation, looking to keep fit and meet new people in your spare time, or looking for a new challenge following retirement or during a career break, the Trust can offer you a range of opportunities!
