To encourage families to enjoy local wildlife, Sevenoaks District Council and the North West Kent Countryside Partnership will be running five free Eco-Trails across the District.
The trails will be set up between 26 July to 6 August in Farningham Woods, Bradbourne Lakes, Oxenhill Woods, Shoreham Woods and Hollybush Recreation Ground. They’ll explore some beautiful nature spots and be filled with fun facts and quizzes along the way.
The trails are self-guided and easy to follow, all participants need to do is turn up and have fun.
There will also be a chance to win one of five Eco-Hamper that includes a reusable, patterned shopping bag, a bamboo hot drinks cup, a pack of wild seed flowers and lots more. The Council will be asking participants to tag them in their favourite wildlife photo from the trail on Facebook. All entries will be put in a prize draw with the winners picked at random.
Cabinet Member for Cleaner and Greener, Cllr Margot McArthur says: “We are so lucky to have amazing wildlife spots right on our doorstep and these trails are a great way to see them.
“The Council’s aim is to give people a better understanding of the important role that nature and biodiversity play in looking after our planet. We also want to encourage residents to enjoy and learn about our outdoor spaces as much as possible.
“The trails and are another free activity we are making available to families during the school summer holidays.”
