GIVING SOMETHING BACK KEEPER NOTES FROM THE WILDLIFE PARK


January 2019 saw the creation of a conservation volunteer group at the Lake District Wildlife Park. A small group of locals have been giving up their time once a month to share and learn new skills, meet new people, get some fresh air and make a valued contribution to nature and wildlife.


involved removing the tubes from young trees that are now well- established, before planting another 2000 native trees. These were planted by the volunteers who joined forces with the Keswick Scouts and Keepers from the Park.


On a wet and windy day, the volunteers braved the cold to construct a willow fence on the bank of the island in the new Flamingo enclosure to help prevent erosion. This was a real success and much fun was had in squelching mud with many new skills learnt. The home-grown willow was woven into a sturdy stand that is now growing well.

At the Wildlife Park, we are devoted to conservation and our ethos is to promote an awareness and understanding of the world around us.

The first task

curious find had to be the hub cap off a car! This was followed by more tree planting. This time, it was apple, pear,


quince and medlar… let’s hope they produce some fruit!


More recently, on another sunny day, we surveyed the upland hay meadows. We found many interesting wildflower species and it was a great day for both beginners and experts alike. We hope to continue this next month
