What's on

We run a busy programme of activities and events throughout the year, ranging from walks and talks to wildlife training courses and ecological surveys. You might learn how to identify wildflowers, hear experts talk about their wildlife experiences or even join in a minibeast safari! Browse through the listings below, and please come along!

Our local groups also organise their own varied programme of events, talks and guided walks, some open to the general public and other to members only. All groups welcome newcomers, so check out the local groups page for information.

We advertise events on our website run by ourselves, our local groups and partner organisations. Events may, on occasion, have to be cancelled ie: due to inclement weather or staff illness. If we need to cancel an event run by NWT, which requires you to book, we will contact everybody on our list at the earliest opportunity. It is therefore preferable to provide a mobile telephone number when booking your place (we will leave a message if we cannot get through to you). We will also amend any cancelled NWT event listed on our website. For any more information, please contact us on 0191 284 6884.
