The National Trust is calling for canoeists to volunteer on Saturday January 24th
to help with a project to clear obstacles from the stretch of the Afon Glaslyn between Llyn Gwynant and Llyn Dinas.
Parts of the section between these two lakes has become difficult to navigate due to fallen trees and overgrowth. It is hoped that with enough volunteers these obstacles can be cleared, leaving a less interrupted section. It is also hoped that access to and from the river can be improved by the removal of unnecessary and unsightly wire fencing.
The National Trust are the major landowners along the upper Glaslyn, from Llyn Gwynant to the bottom of the Aberglaslyn Gorge, and last year drew up an access arrangement to this stretch of water based on river levels (previous news item
Although in principle the Welsh Canoeing Association (WCA) doesn't endorse this arrangement, the National Trust has sought advice from the WCA, Contryside Council for Wales and Environment Agency regarding this ongoing project.
David Crombie from Boulder Adventures said: "We need volunteers to work alongside the Trust on this project. There has already been offers of staff from local outdoor centres who will benefit from this project but more help on the day will be gratefully received."
