Kielder Development Trust Goes Wild

I am delighted that Kielder Development Trust have been awarded £17,700 from the Heritage Lottery Fund, to develop a new visitor attraction, which is all part of the ‘Living Wild at Kielder Project’. 

This fantastic project aims to help people experience and learn about the area’s wildlife through the development of ‘nature hubs’, and a year-round events and activity programme. Trails will also be created from Stonehaugh, Falstone, and Greenhaugh, with wildlife ambassadors and volunteers engaging with visitors.

Such work in supporting our fantastic natural heritage in Kielder, whilst promoting engagement and learning is vital, and this latest grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund is a great step forward.
