Find out more about Northumberland Wildlife Trust!

At Northumberland Wildlife Trust, we want everyone to experience and enjoy wildlife, whether its in their school grounds, local park, a window-box or a wildflower meadow.

We have lots of opportunities for people of all ages to get involved, and run a range of fun family events throughout the year. We also run sessions for schools and community groups throughout the year. 


Our activities can be tailored towards both formal and informal education, within and outside the classroom, from playgroups and after-school clubs to teacher training. Sessions can involve classroom lessons, practical conservation training, and volunteering and local community projects.

  • Pond dipping
