Foulney Island is an important breeding site for sea birds and we need volunteers to help us look after it.

Date and Time:


1:15pm - 4pm

Join us and Cumbria Wildlife Trust and enjoy a trip to Foulney Island to help clean up the shoreline. Foulney Island is formed entirely of pebbles, brought from the Lake District by glaciers during the last ice age and is an important habitat for many birds. You can see lots of species including dunlin, curlew and knot and the island is also home to breeding eider ducks and terns.

Grab your waterproofs and bring a packed lunch and help us to tidy up this island nature reserve.

Please note, the walk over can often be a bit slippy.
