Big Wild Walk @ Doxey Marshes
29 October 2021, 10:00 - 12:00 (Add to calendar)
Come along and learn about how our nationally important wetland reserve Doxey Marshes helps fight climate change. Bring your binoculars - this site is a fantastic nature reserve for hundreds of rare and threatened birds!
This session is part of our Big Wild Walk campaign
We are running a selection of walks for families and grown ups to show the ways in which investing in nature can help combat climate change as well as giving an exclusive tour of the work the Trust is doing on the ground to fight climate change.
This guided walk you can learn all about the climate mitigation work the Trust have carried out at Doxey Marshes as shown by our Head of Nature Reserves and Species Recovery Jeff Sim. Learn how important wetlands are for carbon capture and storage as well as natural flood management, and find out about the work we have done on the ground at Doxey Marshes to help fight climate change.
The site is home to rare and threatened birds so make sure to bring your binoculars!
This session is aimed at adults
This year the UK is hosting COP26 (The UN Climate Conference of the parties) from 1st-12th November. The role of nature is one of the key topics to be discussed.
Help Staffordshire Wildlife Trust tackle the nature and climate emergency by challenging yourself to a Big Wild Walk this October half-term. Between 25th and 31st October, we’re asking nature lovers to fundraise for The Wildlife Trusts by getting outdoors and walking! We are holding a series of free guided walks like this one at Doxey Marshes so people can use the event to fundraise for our Big Wild Walk as well as find out about the climate action work we are doing on the ground.
