The Great Fen is currently benefiting from one of the largest restoration projects of its type in Europe, and the landscape is being restored and transformed for the benefit both of wildlife and of people. Volunteers are key to this vital work.
The reserves and two additional sites have a variety of great walks and opportunities to see wildlife, and the Wildlife Trust Countryside Centre has regular events, activities and clubs.
You can find out specific activities available at:
Self-guided walks and wildlife watching are free and open at any time. Some of the trails and activity ideas for children have leaflets available at the visitor centre and printable PDFs online.
At the Centre, there is a mobility scooter – The Tramper – that gets around most of the site, and is free to hire with advance booking.
Volunteers are always welcome to come and do gardening, restoration, help with activities, and more, with weekly groups or individually when you have time. Find out more on their ‘Volunteer with us’ webpage.
