Trumpington Meadows – Wildlife Trust BCN

Back to Activities

A spacious expanse of flowering meadows, riverside, woodland, hedgerow and parkland within easy reach of the City of Cambridge, managed by the Wildlife Trust BCN.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • getting outside and spending time in green spaces is a proven stress-buster;
  • walking is a great way to start getting active;
  • looking after the environment by supporting & visiting local nature reserves feels good.
