Have a Wilder Christmas
The colder nights and falling leaves is nature telling us that winter and Christmas is on its way. But not all wildlife is hibernating, and there is a lot you can see and do this season to help nature around you - from getting creative with DIY gift ideas to doing your gardening so that wildlife can thrive this winter.
Also, when you buy gifts from our online shop, book tickets for a Beaver Walk or give a donation gift for our Nature Reserves, you help raise vital funds to protect wildlife and wild places – so you really are giving something special for Christmas.
Take a look below and let us know how you are helping wildlife this Christmas - we'd love to see your pictures on Facebook and Twitter.
Gifts and experiences from the shop
When you buy from our shop, you can be confident that any money we make goes straight back to protecting wildlife and wild places in Cornwall. Whether its the stunning Wild Cornwall calendar, the ever-popular rCup or a beaver walk experience, your purchases make great gifts and help fund our work - it's win-win!
Gift a membership
You can give a membership from as little as £18 a year. Set up monthly or yearly payments, or a single one off payment and the recipient will receive a fantastic membership pack including Wild Cornwall (our Trust magazine) and our popular Nature Reserves guide in time for Christmas.
Joining a growing band of over 17,000 members is one of the best ways you can support Cornwall Wildlife Trust – it’s the ultimate gift!
Nature Reserves donation gifts
For many, Christmas isn’t about the latest gadget or heaps of stuff. By making a donation to Cornwall Wildlife Trust on behalf of a loved one or friend, you can let them know how much they mean to you and make a real difference to wildlife in Cornwall at the same time.
With each of the following, you receive a printable card with a space to write a message which is available as a download. You can be sure that the money donated will be spent in the best way for wildlife to thrive on our Nature Reserves.
Get hands on and give a present which is appreciated by the recipient and the wildlife that lives or visits their garden.
