Cumbria Wildlife Trust is the only voluntary organisation in the county devoted solely to the conservation of the wildlife and wild places of Cumbria. With support from their members they care for 40 nature reserves, work to protect endangered species such as the red squirrel, fight to protect habitats at risk from development, and work to inspire people young and old about the natural world. Support Groups are run by Committees. Annual general meetings to elect new committee members take place at the beginning of the year. There are 10 Local Support Groups in Cumbria who organise various events for both members and non-members. These can be illustrated talks in winter and outdoor walks led by specialists in the summer.
The West Coast Support Group covers a wide area of the county from Whitehaven and Egremont to Bootle, the coastal and nearby inland villages and the varied countryside within the area.
The Group holds meetings in winter in either Gosforth or Seascale and outdoor walks in the summer months at different local venues. Meetings are open to members and non members and children accompanied by a responsible adult are welcome. For details of the Group’s meetings contact Hon. Secretary Fiona Galloway on 01946 841313 or email - firstname.lastname@example.org
