WWF's Great Wild Walk comes to the Forest of Dean to raise funds for UK wildlife.

WWF is hosting it's Great Wild Walk in the Forest of Dean this July 2024 — where families of all ages can take part in raising money for nature that is under threat.

Taking place on Saturday 6 July 2024, the Great Wild Walk can either be a five- or 10-mile walk depending on choice and includes a WWF t-shirt to walk in and an eco-medal to collect at the finish line.

The Forest of Dean offers a unique setting to take part in the walk, with wildlife ranging from buzzards and woodpeckers to deer, wild boar and foxes.

The event asks participants to raise a target total of £150 to help tackle the effects of climate change that are threatening the nature that surrounds us — including the precious UK ancient woodlands that have been reduced by up to 70 per cent, home to more threatened species than any other habitat in the country.

Registration costs £5 for those over 16-years-old, with under-16s able to participate for free.

The walk starts at 10am at Beechenhurst in the Forest of Dean.

Those wishing to sign up to take part in the Great Wild Walk can do so via the WWF website.
