Coast Care is a new initiative created to train, support and resource volunteers to contribute to the management and conservation of the Northumberland coastline from Berwick to Amble.
The region is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and incorporates many Special Sites of Scientific Interest (SSSI). Volunteers will care for our sandy beaches, rolling dunes, historic buildings, village greens and other community spaces which make up our coastal environment.
There are a range of volunteer roles including performing wildlife surveys, practical conservation tasks, local site wardens, photographers and administration. We have projects to suit a wide range of interests and capabilities.
Coast Care is a dynamic new partnership delivered by the Northumberland Wildlife Trust, the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Seahouses Development Trust. The project is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
