Our education and community team in Northamptonshire is focussed on delivering activities within our Nene Valley Living Landscape, including family events, guided walks and community consultation. The team is also planning the future of our work in this area, to provide even more opportunities for local people to experience the world class wildlife on their doorsteps

There are also community events that run from our county office at Lings Local Nature Reserve, including a weekly health walk and a monthly Wildlife Watch group. In addition, schools and community groups are able to come and hire equipment to explore the habitats and wildlife of the reserve.

For information on activities at Lings Local Nature Reserve please contact the Northamptonshire office.

Living Nene

The Living Nene project was delivered between August 2012 and August 2015 and aimed to secure the long term protection and enhancement of Irthlingborough Lakes and Meadows Nature Reserve.

We have improved the site for wildlife, and have also increased opportunities for learning, enjoyment and access by local people. Find our more on our Living Nene page.

The Great Outdoors Project - a community nature project

The Great Outdoors Project was delivered between 2009 and 2012 and aimed to encourage local communities to become more active and involved with five nature reserves across Northamptonshire. They are Lings, Storton’s Pits and Kingsthorpe Meadows in Northampton, Summer Leys, near Wellingborough and King’s Wood in Corby. Find out more.
