Why not join us at an event? You might learn to identify wildflowers, hear experts talk about their wildlife experiences, join a minibeast safari or do some campfire cooking.
We have a comprehensive listing of wildlife events in Northumberland, run by ourselves (NWT), our local groups and partner organisations. Key things to remember:
- all children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult
- many events take place outdoors so please dress appropriately. We will only cancel due to severe weather, so please provide a contact telephone number for the day of the event should we need to reach you.
- a few events are for members only, but NWT and our local groups are always pleased to welcome newcomers.
