The Linking the Lizard Partnership is a partnership between the Cornwall Wildlife Trust, National Trust and Natural England who are working with the National Farmers Union, The Cornwall National Landscape and the University of Exeter.
Together these partnership organisations co-ordinate their work to ensure joined up thinking and a sensitive approach to enhance their conservation and land management work across the Lizard. They also collaborate on projects to:
- create better links between local communities, their environments and their economies
- raise the profile of the Lizard as a sustainable visitor destination
- find new ways for people to experience the outdoors
Windmill Farm Nature Reserve is just one of the many sites where you can enjoy the glorious natural environment of the Lizard. This project will help to create better links to neighbouring land managed by Linking the Lizard partners. The Wild Lizard Education Ranger, Claire Scott, has worked for Linking the Lizard partners for a number of years. Claire has been working with schools on the Lizard, inspiring local school children to value the special environment on their doorstep.
Claire will work with local schools as part of the Lizard Horizons project as well as coordinating as series of special events to be held at Windmill Farm.
