Walney Wildlife Day

Walney Wildlife Day

Details

There will be a huge choice of things to do... something for everyone!

These include...
- 'Stranded on Foulney' - these guided walks will be run by our Reserves Officer Pete Jones and will feature a walk over to Foulney Island where you will be 'stranded' by the high tide so you can see the waders flock by. Please email events@cumbriawildlifetrust.org.uk to book onto this walk. Please note the group will leave at 11:30am and will return 3:30pm.

-A hide tour, this will feature 5 hides, each manned by an intelligent nature enthusiast who will be on hand to identify any wildlife spotted. Each hide will also have a fun children's activity... complete all 5 activities and win a good bag!

-Visitor's center fun! Our visitors center will be filled with fun crafty activities such as making jellyfish, mask making and face painting. There will also be a seal cam cinema, raffle and refreshments.

Please bring your reusable mugs and a packed lunch as we'll only have snacks and hot drinks available to purchase.

Sorry no dogs.
