About the event:
Do you love the natural world? Are you a keen rambler who loves to explore Wales on foot? Then this guided walk along the wildlife-rich Montgomery Canal is bound to float your boat.

Due to the popularity of last year’s free guided wildlife walks along the Montgomery Canal, we’re running two more free events in spring 2023.

Organised by Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust as part of the Canals, Communities and Wellbeing project, it will be led by passionate local conservationist and experienced walking guide, Andy Davies.

Suitable for all ages and abilities, the relaxed rambles will be the perfect way to find out more about what makes this waterway so special for wildlife, to discover some interesting facts about particular birds, mammals and amphibians that use it, as well as to just connect with nature on a wonderful walk in a beautiful area.

These walks are taking place thanks to the Canals, Communities and Wellbeing Project. Running until 31 May 2023, this collaborative project is being led by Powys County Council’s Countryside Access and Recreation Team, working in partnership with Glandŵr Cymru, the Canal & River Trust in Wales, Brecon Beacons National Park Authority, Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust and Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales. The activity will complement other initiatives being delivered by the partner organisations and is supported through the Welsh Government Rural Communities - Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government.
