Celebrating Wild Lizard
National Nature Reserve
The Lizard National Nature Reserve was extended in 2016 to include an extra 470 hectares of land in National Trust and Cornwall Wildlife Trust care such as Kynance Cove, Lizard Point, Black Head and Windmill Farm. This makes the Lizard NNR one of the largest in the south-west at almost 2500 hectares of nationally important land recognised for its incredible wildlife.
In celebration of this extended National Nature Reserve, the National Trust and partners Natural England and Cornwall Wildlife Trust, are organising a series of events during May and June 2017.
Track down elusive nightjars by their bizarre churring calls, peer into ponds to dis- cover dragonfly nymphs and newts, join botanists to marvel at the glorious spring flowers carpeting the cliffs and get to know why the Lizard Peninsula is such an im- portant place for wildlife and a mecca for naturalists. With events appealing to all ages and interests, there’s bound to be a wildlife adventure to suit!
