More about Cumbria Wildlife Trust

Events for schools and families 

Cumbria Wildlife Trust offers a wide range of activities for schools and families.  Our ‘What’s On’ guide has details of all our events. We also run activities for families (pond dipping, mini-beast hunts, etc) at various regional events throughout the year from country shows and fetes to national marine week, parks week and so on.


Education services

Our education service offers field trips, assemblies, school visits, classroom activities, teacher training and school grounds surveys. We offer themed workshops for primary schools for a half or a whole day via our network of wildlife tutors. School members of the Trust can also download activities each term and receive class packs of the Watch magazines plus 'Link' - our termly resources guide for teachers.


Wildlife Watch groups

Our Watch groups welcome children of 5-11 years. They usually meet once a month and get involved in activities such as pond dipping, bat watching and wildlife crafts as well as learning about our local animals, insects, birds and plants. Other activities have included making nest boxes, planting trees and helping to record wildlife.
