At Northumberland Wildlife Trust, people are at the heart of everything we do and we believe that everyone should have the chance to enjoy and learn more about the natural world. We work 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.
Here’s just a taste of the ways we get involved:
- We run events for all age groups, from mini beast hunts, to owl pellet dissection, to learning about specific species such as moths and reptiles 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 local wildlife groups to highlight current environmental issues and provide updates on our work.
- We provide staff speakers on a variety of topics – please contact us to discuss options (recommended donation of £50 per talk plus any travel expenses).
- We work with a range of local partners across the region to hold joint events.
- We host an annual wildlife event (this year it's a series of events over the Big Wild Weekend in June) to connect people with local wildlife, working alongside a host of local wildlife professionals and interested amateurs.
- We provide support including promotion for local groups, individuals and organisations looking to undertake fundraising for the Trust.
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 events page, or contact us for further information.
