Wildlife Viewing Screen
Cramlington & District Red Squirrel Group is achieving more with our initiatives than ever before. We work on many exciting projects to help improve engagement with the outdoors and nature, and are very proud of the progress we continue to make. Learn more about what we do, who we help and how we work every day to promote positive change.
The Wildlife Viewing Screen
In September 2021 as part of Red Squirrel Awareness Week we set about engaging with over 2700 key stage 2 school children in our area with a competition to design some art work for our wildlife viewing screen at East Cramlington Nature Reserve.
We were inundated with amazing entries and our committee struggled to whittle down the entries to 10 finalists.
Our lucky winner was Scarlett who created a wonderful red squirrel along some interesting squirrel facts.
The artwork was transferred onto the viewing screen by John Craggs
We'd also like to thank Northumberland Wildlife Trust Trust, Red Squirrels Northern England, Red Squirrel Education for the fantastic prizes provided to the winning school and the top three entries.
About the viewing screen
The viewing screen provides a simple way to allow the local community to engage with the local wildlife whilst enjoying their visit to the nature reserve. Each month the viewing screen is kindly sponsored by a local business or supporter. This allows the group to supplementary feed the wildlife in a controlled manner, maintain the viewing screen and update equipment.
If you'd like to sponsor the viewing screen, please get in touch.
