Campaigns & Projects
There are several campaigns you can get involved with Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust
Thanks to support from players of People's Postcode Lottery, Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is again this year able to deliver a county-wide programme of Forest Schools inspired Woodland Workshops.
The Trust wil be delivering specially tailored programmes of workshops for schools and community groups and running family friendly sessions at weekends and in school holidays at its two flagship nature reserves.
Workshops will focus on teaching a range of craft and survival skills in safe, inspirational outdoor spaces.
Thanks to the support of our members, partners and the general public, Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust has been able to extend its much loved Skylarks Nature Reserve and to carry out an extensive programme of work to make the site better for both wildlife and people. Thanks to the funding raised through our Skylarks Appeal, in addtion to carrying out habitat and access improvements we will also be working with Nottinghamshire County Council's community archaeology team to deliver a programme of events and actvities for schools, young people and local families.
To find out more about the site and the work our supporters have helped fund, why not come along to one of our events? For further details click on the News & Events tab below.
Whilst we have now purchased the land we still need the support of Members and donors to enable us to care for sites such as Skylarks Nature Reserve. You can help us do more for local wildlife by joining or donating today using one of the buttons on the right.
Get involved with our campaign Wildlife On Your Doorstep.
The “Wildlife On Your Doorstep” campaign is supported by Novozymes Biopharma and highlights the range of ways that Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is working with partners to protect the county's wildlife and provides information on how individuals, schools, companies and other organisations can play a role in protecting wildlife in the heart of local communities.
As part of the campaign we are running a Gardening for Wildlife Census to help build a clearer picture of the value of the county's gardens for wildlife. We've had hundreds of responses, with birds such as balckbird and robin vying for top spot as people's favourite garden visitor. As well as telling us about the wildlife they have seen, many respondents are also keen to receive information about how they can imporve their gardens for wildlife. As a result, we are now developing a range of factsheets and other resources such as our full colour planting guide.
Updates on results from the Census can be found in the 'News & Events' section below.
Get your friends, family or colleagues involved and host a fundraising event yourself. It could be a cake stall or night in with friends. We have put together a full suite of resources available for download from the tab below including a Fundraising Ideas and Guidance Booklet.
After a successful Young Roots project came to an end in September 2016 a new Youth Project was born in the form of the “Keeping it Wild” youth group. This project is working with Young people aged 13-25 years old across Nottinghamshire.
The project is all about getting a grass roots group of young people to develop into a constituted Youth Group through holding events and initiatives of their own design, tapping into their creativity and knowledge of how to engage their contemporaries. The group will use their own techniques to enthuse other young people to want to protect their local wild spaces and natural heritage for the future.
