Events' programme

Involving staff and the local community in looking after the Wetlands Nature Reserve is important to its continuing success.

The Wetlands Nature Reserve consists of a mix of habitats, including naturally filled ponds, wet grassland, wet woodland, riverbank, shrubs and individual specimen trees. The creation of these areas will help contribute to local wildlife targets for the county as a whole, and we need your help to keep it a diverse natural habitat, for all to enjoy.

The Wetlands Nature Reserve is run by Wellcome, with support and advice being provided by the Cambridgeshire Wildlife Trust.

All events are free to attend (however, we would ask that you consider a donation to the Wildlife Trust for the training courses).

Although there are limits on the number of people who can attend, children are more than welcome when accompanied by an adult.

You do not need any experience or equipment for these activities as you will be trained on the day, where appropriate. Please do let us know if you are planning to attend any of our events, due to the limits on numbers, by emailing us at:

Wetlands Nature Reserve

This six-hectare (15-acre) nature reserve has been specially created to provide a range of habitats for local plant and animal species. The reserve provides a natural flood-relief mechanism by acting as a large sponge and storing rainwater during periods of heavy rainfall.
