Red Squirrels at Wallington

This September find out more about the red squirrels who call Wallington home and the work our rangers do to protect them.

Wallington employs the National Trust's only full time Red Squirrel Ranger who works to support our resident red squirrels.  There are now approximately 150 on the Wallington estate with daily sightings at the wildlife hide

From the 1 September follow the Squirrel Spotting Trail in the East Wood.  See if you can spot the six larger than life red squirrels hiding in the woodland and once you've found them figure out the hidden word.

From 27 September until 1 October there's the opportunity to meet our Red Squirrel Ranger who will be leading squirrel spotting walks and talking about the work he does to protect them.

A visit wouldn't be complete without stopping in at the wildlife hide in the West Wood.  Set into the woodland, with plentiful feeders it really is the perfect place to spot a red squirrel; with a bit of time and patience you may well be rewarded with a sighting.

During your visit ask one of the team if you can purchase a £1.00 raffle ticket; for every raffle ticket bought we receive an additional £1.00 and all proceeds go directly into the red squirrel conservation work helping to fund the role of the Red Squirrel Ranger (better still, you could win £10,000).
