Lowick Common gifted to the Cumbria Wildlife Trust

Water Lily at Leech Tarn on Lowick Common

This year, Lowick Common, which surrounds Howe Foot has been gifted by its previous owner to Cumbria Wildlife Trust. There are so many rare and beautiful wild creatures that share the Common and to know that it is now in such safe hands is an absolute treat and I look forward to following their progress as they monitor the various species, flora and fauna.

Cumbria Wildlife Trust is the only voluntary organisation devoted solely to the conservation of the wildlife and wildplaces of Cumbria. The Trust stands up for wildlife, creates wildlife havens, and seeks to raise environmental awareness.

Formed in 1962 and supported by thousands of members and supporters, the Trust cares for over 40 nature reserves (37 are open to visitors), campaigns for the protection of endangered habitats and species such as limestone pavements and red squirrels, and works with adults and children to discover the importance of the natural world.

Cumbria Wildlife Trust is part of a partnership of 47 local Wildlife Trusts across the UK. With more than 800,000 members and 2,300 nature reserves, we are the largest UK voluntary organisation dedicated to conserving the full range of the UK's habitats and species.
