Our family-friendly annual walk celebrates the best of Gloucestershire's Countryside.

Walk 4 Wildlife: The walk

This year we are delighted to present to our supporters our new Crickley Hill reserve and the chance to enjoy everything the site has to offer. Situated between Cheltenham and Gloucester this historic site has many gems to share.

Our 3.5 mile circular route will follow in the footsteps of naturalist and explorer Edward Wilson, who was the chief of the scientific staff on Scott’s final expedition to the South Pole and who loved the area. Scott acknowledged that it was Wilson who ‘opened his eyes to nature’ and Peter, Captain Scott’s son, fittingly went on to found Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust in 1961.

Our walk will take in some spectacular views, ancient SSSI woodland which hosts rare plants such as the Birds Nest orchid, birds including the Great Spotted Woodpecker and nearly 500 species of fungi!

This really will be a celebration of our new sites, an opportunity to showcase just how much there is on offer and to hear from expert reserve managers about the fascinating history and ecology of the reserve. The afternoon will be rounded off with a chance to enjoy refreshments, and family fun. We hope you can join us!
