Durham Wildlife Trust is a nature conservation charity. It owns and manages 37 nature reserves throughout our region covering an area of almost 800 hectares, providing special places for people, for wildlife and for future generations.
There are lots of ways to get involved in our work. Volunteer, become a member, book a school visit or support one of our campaigns.
Visit one of our nature reserves located across the region or take a walk and stop for a coffee and cake at one of our fabulous coffee shops located in our visitor centres at Rainton Meadows and Low Barns.
