World Land Trust (WLT) had a stand at Wild About Norfolk, an annual wildlife and environmental fair at Easton & Otley College on 11 October 2014.

As in previous years, Wild About Norfolk attracted more than 40 exhibitors and between 1,000 to 2,000 visitors. There was a programme of walks and talks and plenty of activities for all ages including badge making, pebble painting, puppet making, pond dipping, face painting and bird box making.

WLT's ‘match the ears to the cat’ competion proved popular with visitors. The competition was designed to promote WLT's Big Cat Appeal, and the prize was a family entry ticket donated by Banham Zoo.

Wild About Norfolk was a great family event offering opportunities for both children and adults to learn about wildlife from a range of experts representing local groups and national organisations who work to protect and restore Norfolk’s wildlife and landscape.  

So, if you want to know why there are so many dragonflies this year, have a mushroom identified or learn about what lives at the bottom of your garden, Wild About Norfolk is the place to be.

Dan Bradbury was representing WLT. As well as being WLT’s Head of Digital Communications he is a keen naturalist, bird watcher and photographer and has lived most of his life in Norfolk. Dan was joined by Julia Warnes from WLT's Donations Team.

Wild About Norfolk was founded in 2000 by David and Christine Cannon from the RSPB Norwich Local Group. Since then Wild About Norfolk has become one of Norfolk’s main wildlife events of the year. Celebrities who have participated in the event include: Chris Packham (one of WLT’s Patrons) and Nick Baker, another high profile WLT supporter.

Wild About Norfolk is an independent charity. The event is organised by a group of volunteers from several different organisations and backgrounds who share a common aim to raise the profile of Norfolk's very special natural heritage and those who work to preserve it.
