From the Eden Project...
"We’ve very recently launched a lovely new initiative in partnership with the RSPB, More Human and members of the Community Action collective: Community Nature Trails.
The idea is to help communities create their own local map of the local public sights, activities, events, and projects connected to nature where they live this summer – as another great way to support strong mental and physical health and bring people together with nature and each other."
Have a look at tthe process - could we get together and do some trails here in Herefordshire? Let us know!
What is a community nature trail?
A Community Nature Trail is a local map of spaces, activities, events, and projects that bring you closer to nature. It’s created by the community, for the community.
Whether it’s permanent, for a season, or just for a weekend, a Community Nature Trail is a great way to showcase local social, cultural, and recreational activities involving nature. Creating your nature trail is the perfect free summer holiday activity too and can be used for schools and businesses.
You can create your own trail or find one near you.
*Please note, if you know of nesting or young animals, you might not want to attract too much attention with your nature trail.
