National Marine Week is The Wildlife Trusts’ nationwide celebration of all things marine. Despite the name, it lasts 15 fun-filled days to allow for the variation in tide times around the country. During this time, Wildlife Trusts all around the UK put on a jam-packed programme of events and activities... including inland! This year may be slightly different, due to the Covid-19 crisis. We will continue updating this page as we draw closer to National Marine Week.
