Get out there! Explore Morecambe Bay in new ways - join in with our events this Spring.

Get out there this Spring!

Want to explore the Bay in new ways? Whether you're into birds, bikes, art or edibles, have fun and enjoy the wonders of our beautiful Bay area this Spring.

Perhaps you'd like to learn to identify bird song, create art on the beach, forage around the coastline or take to your bike for a gentle ride around Morecambe? Take a look at our Spring events leaflet or search our events here. Early booking is recommended!

We're excited about our Bay Archaeology Festival: Rediscovering the Bay's old ways, taking place 16 - 31 July. There will be walks, talks, guest speakers and lots of family fun - so pop the dates in your diary and look out for more details, coming soon.

If you love the Bay and want to help protect and preserve it, why not join a beach clean or conservation work day, bashing bracken or helping to clear invasive species? New events are added throughout the year, so please do check back here regularly.

We also have lots of training opportunities coming up - from becoming a history detective and uncovering a place's hidden past, to learning to undertake bird surveys so we can keep track of our feathered friends and help them to flourish in the Bay.

And if you have some spare time, some skills to offer and a willingness to get involved, we're keen to hear from new volunteers - please do contact us to find out about our current volunteer and training opportunities.

We hope to see you at one of our events soon!
