Grazing for Landscape Conservation: a guided walk to meet the herds at Wicken Fen

June 3, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Join one of our ranger team to find out all about the konik ponies and highland cattle at Wicken Fen.

Discover the principles behind extensive grazing as a way of restoring and managing landscape-scale habitats on this walk. Our koniks (ponies) and highland cattle out on the wider reserve at Wicken Fen have become an iconic part of the landscape, and a favourite with many visitors. Living out all year, in their natural family groups, these herbivores are shaping and influencing the fenland. Find out how they benefit Wicken Fen conservation, and learn all about their quirks and lifestyle.

Wear suitable clothing for the weather and sturdy footwear. Bring binoculars if you have them.
