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. Please see our calendar for upcoming walks and talks. We can be contacted by email at email@example.com 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'. 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
