Welcome to the Weardale Wildlife Group

 

Our next event is Tuesday 17th July 2018 and is a joint outing with the AONB, to support the project called 'Pluging the Gaps;. The evening will start with a briefing about the project and information on the seeds to collect. We will then walk in the Cowshill area collecting seeds - please see the calendar for full details.

 

Our subscriptions run from January to December, if you would like to join or renew your subscription, just ask at any of our talks. Subscription is £10 per person or £15 for a couple and entitles you to attend all our talks and walks.

 

Wildlife is an important part of Weardale's landscape but much of it is being lost. In order to conserve and protect our natural heritage we want to play our part in understanding our wildlife and encouraging others to enjoy our surroundings.

 

We aim to:

  • Bring together people interested in wildlife
  • Record key wildlife species and their habitats
  • Encourage local interest in wildlife and conservation
  • Share our knowledge and skills with other groups and organisations

If you would like to get involved, your enthusiasm and interest would be warmly welcome and we have many events in the pipeline. If you are interested in joining our steering group, please let us know, we are always looking for additional volunteers. We can be contacted by email at enquiries@weardalewildlifegroup.co.uk or check out our facebook page. Feel free also to post events or news on our blog page on this website, called 'What's been going on' or on our facebook page. Please note, we have a no dog policy.

 

We also record wildlife sightings which are submitted to Wildwatch. Please use the following link to record your own sightings Wildwatch
