Linford Lakes Nature Reserve Mammal Project

Water Vole - Cromford Canal, C.Ward.JPG

The Linford Lakes Mammal Project is led by a small group of enthusiastic volunteers who participate in regular surveying and data collection to help maintain, and build upon, the current record of mammal species at the reserve. The group meets regularly throughout the year to learn new techniques and to discuss any recent sightings.

We are always looking for new volunteers to join our friendly group. No previous experience is necessary, just an enthusiasm for wildlife and willingness to work outdoors and get hands-on! If you would like to find out more and are interested in joining the mammal project group then please contact Rosanna Lee,
