Working with the community

Northumberland Wildlife Trust works across the local community to inspire, educate and motivate people to champion their local wild places.

As well as protecting vulnerable species and habitats, we also seek to raise awareness of local conservation issues and our native wildlife, and encourage people to join us as supporters.

  • We run events for all age groups, from pond dipping with our wildlife watch groups, to free play with our Wild Tots, to foraging with adults or guided bird walks on our reserves.
  • We regularly attend fairs and shows across the region, where we can meet face-to-face with our supporters and other like-minded people.
  • We visit regional wildlife groups to highlight current environmental issues and provide updates on our work.
  • We work with a range of local partners across the region to hold joint events.
  • We host an annual Our Wildlife event to connect people with local wildlife, working alongside a host of local wildlife professionals and interested amateurs

We're always looking for new and interesting ways to engage the public with wildlife, and we're particularly looking for local fundraising or collaborative opportunities. If you'd like to know more or get involved, see our what's on page, or contact us for further information.
