CRST is a voluntary organisation and relies on volunteers and donations to carry out its work. We are always looking for new volunteers to help us. If you don’t have time to volunteer, you might like to become a member of CRST to keep up to date with our work and the progress of red squirrels in Clocaenog Forest.

Become a member

Membership fees help support the ongoing work of the Clocaenog Red Squirrels Trust. They help to pay for new equipment to help us monitor the red squirrels.

Membership benefits

  • Newsletters from CRST to keep you up to date with activities, fund raising, talks and training events.
  • Some local businesses also offer discounts to CRST members.


If you like being outdoors, you might like help us by becoming a volunteer. No special skills or qualifications are needed.

Examples of work volunteers have done so far

  • Topping up feeders and checking cameras in the forest
  • Uploading records of sightings to Cofnod (Environmental Records Centre for North Wales)
  • Building enclosures for new arrivals
  • Manning stalls at events to raise awareness
  • Holding fundraising events eg coffee mornings, jumble sales
  • Translating documents into Welsh

Local business?

If you’re a business in North Wales you might like to support CRST by:

  • offering discounts to members
  • having our flyers or newsletters to give to your customers
  • having a volunteer day in the forest for your staff?

Perhaps you can suggest other ways? We’d love to hear from you.

Social media

If volunteering is not for you, you can still support us by following us on social media and sharing our posts to raise awareness of the red squirrels project in Clocaenog.
