NWT also runs an amazingly diverse range of events which include guided walks, talks, poetry and music performances, and special sessions which could lead the way to an additional hobby such as bird-watching, photography or astronomy.
There’s lots for children too, from bug hunts and finding fossils to rock pool rummaging and making ‘coastal creations’ from natural materials found on the beach.
Encouraging the next generation to care about nature is an important part of the NWT’s calling. Each year it engages with more than 5,000 children and young people who visit the reserves on organised trips, as well as many more on informal education events. The trust also offers a ‘Wildlife Watch
’ membership and activities for younger family members.
An annual membership also entitles people to four mailings a year, including the popular Tern magazine, and they can opt into a monthly e-newsletter which gives information about events on the reserves and points to some animals, birds, insects or plants which may be found at that time of year.
If you are a nature-lover yourself, a gift membership is a great way to share your enthusiasm with friends or relatives and you will know your money will play a vital part in the trust’s work to save Norfolk’s wildlife for the future.
As well as a year of great experiences, the person who receives your gift will have something to unwrap on Christmas Day, a membership pack comes in a gift box with the reserves handbook, their first copy of Tern magazine and NWT literature.
If you would like to make a gift of NWT membership, the cost for an individual is £32, and joint and family memberships are also available.
Call 01603 625540 or click to order online, via card or Direct Debit
. If you like, we can post the pack direct to your friend or relative with a personalised greetings card.
The last date to order for confirmed pre-Christmas delivery is Tuesday 10 December.
