We run schools and community activities in Peterborough to get closer to wildlife.

Our vibrant City of Peterborough and surrounding countryside sits on the cusp of three of the Wildlife Trust's Living Landscapes. These are bigger, better, joined up spaces for wildlife to thrive and people to enjoy.

The Great Fen

The Great Fen to the south stretches from Yaxley to Woodwalton and is one of the most important habitat restoration projects in Europe; a 50-year project aiming to create a huge wetland area of wild fen. Find out more.

Nene Valley

The Nene Valley Living Landscape vision, running through the heart of Peterborough, and covering more than 41,000 hectares along the River Nene, rises in the west of Northamptonshire and extends the length of the county before flowing through Peterborough then out to the Wash. Find out more.

John Clare Country

This beautiful area celebrates the rich wildlife, history, heritage and culture to the west of the city from Bretton to Stamford. Also known as ‘The Poor Man’s Cotswolds’ there are nature reserves, cafes, shops, walks and even holiday cottages here. Find out more.

What's on / Get involved

An exciting and variable events calendar runs throughout the year delivered by the Trust, and our Peterborough Local Group.

The Community Team offers a comprehensive array opportunities linked to the Living Landscapes, as well as advice for local community groups on all manner of wildlife. We can help with community greenspace plans, events, activities and school programmes.
