Covid-19 Safety Measures

We are delighted that our outdoor events, workshops and programmes, including family events and guided walks, are running again. Visit our events page for a full list of upcoming events and to book your place. Events will continue to be planned on the basis of making them Covid-safe. This may happen in a number of ways, including limiting group size, regular sanitisation and ensuring personal space. Our duty of care to our staff, volunteers, members and visitors remains our top priority.

Wildlife Safaris

Enjoy wildlife from the water

Our events with partners Scudamore's in Cambridge and Canoe2 at Rushden Lakes offer brilliant ways to get closer to nature this summer.

Go punting on the River Cam at dusk, with a Wildlife Trust guide and bat detectors at your disposal so you can listen in to the clicks and whirrs of bats whilst taking in the abundance of evening wildlife from the water.

Or take a guided stroll around our Nene Wetlands nature reserve to discover the wildlife all around you, then head out onto the water for an evening paddle to enjoy it all from the water.

Our Teams organise many family friendly events on our nature reserves where you can get up close to wildlife. We also organise Wildlife Watch, the UK’s leading wildlife club for young people.
