CUMBRIA WILDLIFE TRUST
Cumbria Wildlife Trust cares passionately about wildlife and wild places – we’re here to put wildlife back into our land and seascapes to make Cumbria a wilder county with more space for nature. We restore and connect wild places, work with nature to tackle the climate emergency and support people to take local action for wildlife.
With a dedicated team of skilled and professional staff working closely with volunteers, partners and thousands of supporters, together we’re creating a wilder future for Cumbria.
We are part of a UK-wide grassroots movement made up of 46 individual Wildlife Trusts who all believe that we need nature and nature needs us.
Cumbria and the Lake District is famous for its wonderful natural environment and wildlife (this is possibly one of the reasons you’re visiting us!). So, whilst you’re staying with us, we thought you might be interested in joining one of
Cumbria Wildlife Trust’s Wildlife Experiences.
They are excellent opportunities for you to get a closer look at nature with an expert guide (and tasty local refreshments thrown in too!). There’s four locations to choose from (all relatively close to here). You can find out more about these wonderful experiences, and how to book, on this website
or about each separate experience:
- ‘Night-Time Wildlife Adventure’ (Grange-over-Sands)
- ‘Explore the secret side of Foulshaw Moss’ (Witherslack)
- ‘Go wildlife tracking after hours at South Walney Nature Reserve’
- ‘Discover a lost rainforest...in Cumbria!’ (Staveley Woodlands)
A downloadable leaflet may be found at this link.
Cumbria Wildlife Trust also maintain several live webcams including one showing ospreys at Foulshaw Moss
(the view will depend on the season).
