Reconnecting with local nature

Welcome to Westland Countryside Stewards

We are a conservation charity based in North Cornwall, dedicated to protecting and preserving our local environment and making it accessible to everyone. We know nature is a gift to cherish and appreciate. Simply being in nature can have a profound impact on our mental and physical health, and provide us with a greater sense of community and connection with our environment. That’s why we’ve been working tirelessly to ensure that our local landscape is accessible and enjoyable for everyone. Through our efforts, we have achieved incredible successes. We opened Kilkhampton Common to local walkers, reintroduced the endangered water vole back to Cornwall, and provided everyone with the opportunity to explore and learn about the local landscape.

Donate to us today, and help us protect and preserve our local environment. Together, we can make a difference and ensure that our natural world is here for generations to come.
