Pollinator Wellbeing Walks

Brought to you by the National Trust and Cumbria Wildlife Trust as part of the Planting for Pollinators project, join us on a peaceful walk through the wildflowers as we come together to protect these important habitats.

  • Booking essential
  • Free event

Come on a guided wander through the wildflower meadows, with the chance to make a difference by getting involved in a little hands-on conservation work through weeding, seed collection, butterfly counting, or bulb planting.

Combining helping our meadows, and by extension our pollinators, we invite you to enjoy a moment of wellbeing surrounded by the sight and smell of wildflowers.
