Our collaboration with Northamptonshire company Canoe2 is a unique way to experience and appreciate nature - spot wildlife while gliding the River Nene.

Trips start from Rushden Lakes and include a relaxing self-guided paddle as well as a guided walk around Ditchford Lakes and Meadows  (part of Nene Wetlandswith a Wildlife Trust expert.

Canoe2 will donate 50% of ticket sales from these events to the Wildlife Trust BCN, so every trip helps wildlife!
