The £19,670 funding comes from the Ventient Sisters North Steads Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund at the Community Foundation, available to community groups within a 5km radius of the wind farm.
The money will enable the wildlife charity to provide a year long trainee placement for a young person to work across its five reserves at Druridge Bay.
They will gain experience with a variety of habitats, develop new skills and earn practical qualifications as well as improve their survey and species identification knowledge.
Alex Lister, Druridge Bay Living Landscapes manager, said: “Without this amazing cash boost we wouldn’t have been able to offer such a great opportunity to a young person.
