Wildlife & Community

Our Peterborough Team works closely with the local community to inspire people about the natural world on their doorstep, providing opportunities to learn, experience and take action for wildlife. We provide opportunities for volunteers and work with community groups and schools to improve our environment for wildlife. We also organise and run events for all ages, such as guided wildlife walks or hands-on activities like wildlife gardening and insect days.

Based on the success of our Youth Ranger Scheme in Bedfordshire, we are setting up a pilot scheme in Peterborough from May 2019. If you are aged between 13 and 18 years, and have an interest in wildlife and/or being outdoors, this is for you.

The scheme, which the Wildlife Trust will run in collaboration with other Peterborough-based conservation organisations, aims to facilitate a young person’s group to carry out important practical tasks and some monitoring work across nature reserves in the Peterborough area. There will be 7 sessions per year – one per school holiday, two in the summer holidays.  All equipment and training will be provided by DBS-checked staff. Tasks will be located at different reserves across the Peterborough area on the following dates:

May - Wednesday 29th
July – Weds 31st
August – Weds 28th
October – Weds 23rd
Xmas hols – TBC
February – Weds 19th
April – Weds 8th
