Get involved

We have lots of opportunities to get involved with our work on the Colourful Coast, so whether you want to learn new skills, get outside or meet new people we hope to have something for you.

Beach cleaning

We organise monthly beach cleans alternating between Whitehaven and St Bees.  Both of these places suffer from litter which has been washed in on the tide, washed out of the sewage system or dropped on the shore.  We get together to help tidy it up and remove it  before it makes its way out to sea.  All the dates and details  can be found on our Events page.  We provide all the equipment, you just need to come along and join in!

Recording nature at Birkhams Quarry

Every year we have the opportunity to record the nature we find at this working quarry site, just outside Whitehaven.  The site is not open to the public so this is a unique opportunity to get behind the scenes and see how nature is recovering.  We also spend some time carrying out conservation work to ensure the wildflower grassland can regenerate.  Dates for 2020 are 11 June, 23 July and 3 September.  For more information about these events or to book a place please email Sophie, our Project Officer sophie.badrick@nationaltrust.org.uk
