National Wildflower Centre

We exist to promote the creation of new wildflower habitats to benefit people and wildlife through
demonstration, educational activity and practical application. Nature is for everyone.

Founded 1999

  • Mission statement

    The National Wildflower Centre (NWC) is a charitable visitor attraction with a difference.

    We run a seasonal visitor centre with quirky events and workshops that use art, nature and science to inform, inspire and include adults and children of all ages and abilities delivered locally in the Merseyside region. We campaign nationally with our partners such as the Eden Project, Plantlife and the RHS to improve people’s access to nature, particularly for those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

  • Aims

    National Wildflower Centre aims to:

    • To preserve our native wildflower species by demonstrating ways in which the public can replicate plantings at home.
    • To make nature and wildflowers accessible to everyone, regardless of ability, background or knowledge.
    • To promote creative conservation - encouraging people to learn about making new wildflower habitats to benefit them and wildlife.
    • To educate people of all ages and abilities about British wildflowers and so raise awareness about their importance to wildlife and humans.
