The Wild Watch project have organised a fantastic programme of free events to discover the wildlife of Nidderdale Outstanding Area of Natural Beauty.  Throughout July and September there is a range of walks, talks, training events and family fun sessions, including moth trapping, pond dipping, bird watching and bat detecting!  All events are free but some do need to be booked in advance. For details, click here to download the full programme.

The Wild Watch is a three year project delivered by Nidderdale AONB, an affiliated society of the YNU, with funding from The Heritage Lottery Fund. The project is helping local people to gather information on over 50 species across the AONB to provide data which will help inform conservation management of this spectacular site in the future.  For information on the project and how you can get involved, visit The Wild Watch website.
