Nature Walks Project

Our Nature Walks in Hyndburn programme started in January 2010 and finished in April 2014. The project was all about learning and experiencing nature, whether it was coming along to a bat walk, planting a tree, developing a walk leaflet or taking ownership of a natural area. 
 
Over 4 years nearly 2000 adults and children have been involved with a variety of project, walks, environmental activities, schools visits and training courses. 35 community groups including several PROSPECTS Panels have benefitted from invovlement during the nature walks project. This involvement has ranged from helping to organise and lead a walk, development of a nature conservation project or other volunteering opportunities. Just under 400 volunteering an awareness raising events were organised including 84 walks and training courses.
 
17 sites have been improved for both widlife and local people, of which are regularly managed by volunteers.
