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 (NWT), our local groups, and partner organisations, and each one is clearly identified in the event listing. Most NWT events are now available to book online which means you can ensure your place on the day and receive reminders nearer the time. We run a number of events for families and children but please note that all children must be accompanied by an adult. You will be prompted to book an adult place along with all children's places on our online booking system.
Many events take place outdoors, and most will go ahead in all weather conditions so please do dress appropriately. Events may, on occasion, have to be amended or cancelled due to inclement weather. It is therefore preferable if you can please provide a mobile telephone number when booking your place (we will leave a message if we cannot get through to you).
If we need to cancel an NWT event, we will endeavour to reschedule it for an alternative date. If the alternative date is not convenient, all monies paid to us will be refunded in full. If you find that you need to cancel your booking for an NWT event, if you cancel your place up to 21 days before the event, a full refund will be made. If cancellation is less than 21 days before the day of the event, unfortunately we will not be able to make a refund due to administrative costs. If you have any queries regarding any of our events or our policies please contact us on 0191 284 6884 during office hours, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
