Away during half-term and want new places to experience autumn’s wildlife spectacles? Or perhaps you just want to discover nature on your doorstep...

With Nature Finder, The Wildlife Trusts’ new iPhone app, you will have a fabulous guide to thousands of nature reserves and wildlife across the UK.

If you’re looking for a day out and wondering where to go or what to do, look no further

Nature Finder, the simple location-based app, enables the user to find Wildlife Trust nature reserves and events wherever their current location.  The app uses GPS technology to automatically find the user’s location and display maps and listings of Wildlife Trust nature reserves and events nearby.  Each nature reserve has an image, brief description, and information on facilities, such as parking, toilets etc.

If you’re looking for a day out and wondering where to go or what to do, look no further.  Visit glorious woodlands, beautiful wetlands and inspiring coastline - wander through wild countryside, discover secret inner city wildlife havens and enjoy family events from bat nights to fungal forays and children’s nature activities.

The Wildlife Trusts care for more than 2,300 of some of the most beautiful wild places in the UK – landscapes that not only look gorgeous but are all the more precious because they are carefully managed to ensure that wild plants and species can thrive. 

Fantastic features of Nature Finder, which is free, include:
• Searching more than 2,000 Wildlife Trust nature reserves
