Most advent calendars have a little piece of chocolate lurking behind the door, but Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust’s Advent’ure Calendar is all about getting out and enjoying our brilliant county – and then feeling justified to gorge on treats over Christmas and make sure the wildlife in your garden has plenty to eat too.

There are twenty four ideas, one for every day in the run up to Christmas, all about helping you to enjoy wildlife and wild places in Gloucestershire, whilst caring for the creatures that call the county home.

Simply sign up to the GWT Advent’ure Calendar and every day we’ll give you a different idea for how you can be part of wild Gloucestershire – whether it’s ideas for where to go and what to do; or some crafty ideas for making things for wildlife; or some special unique gift ideas for your friends. Have you ever given anyone a dormouse for Christmas? Well, this year, you can! Or a barn owl, a hedgehog, a stag beetle, or an otter!

Once you’ve signed up you’ll receive your Advent’ure Calendar direct to your inbox at the end of November – click on the door each day to discover an idea on where to go, what to make and gifts to buy. We’ll also send you a sneak peek of what’s coming up every few days, as a reminder of the wild things that could break up the chaos of Christmas.

Did you know GWT has more than 60 reserves? So let’s counteract every pre-Christmas calorie with lovely walks – from hiking through woods, to squelching along river banks, and following hares through Cirencester – this Christmas there’s no need to let December weigh you down. Winter should be welcomed when there are so many magical places on our doorstep to explore.
