Take a Big Wild Walk at Doxey Marshes with Staffordshire Wildlife Trust

The county’s largest nature conservation charity is asking people in Stafford to tackle the nature and climate emergency by challenging themselves to a Big Wild Walk this October half-term.

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust is asking nature lovers to fundraise as it embarks on its mission to protect at least 30 per cent of land and sea for nature by 2030.

The charity is running a selection of walks for families and grownups to show the ways in which investing in nature can help combat climate change, as well as giving an exclusive tour of the work the Trust is doing on the ground to fight climate change.

People can now sign-up to a Big Wild Walk around Doxey Marshes on Friday 29th October, a guided walk where you can learn all about the climate mitigation work the Trust has carried out at Doxey Marshes as shown by Head of Nature Reserves and Species Recovery Jeff Sim.

In honour of the Trust’s 30 by 30 goal, it is also challenging people to take on one of the following:

  • Walk 30km over the Big Wild Walk week
  • Walk 30km in three days
  • Walk 30km in one day

The walk at Doxey Marshes is aimed at adults and is around two miles long.

The Big Wild Walk is part of The Wildlife Trust movement’s action against climate change as part of COP26 (The UN Climate Conference of the parties) which takes place from 1st-12th November. The role of nature is one of the key topics to be discussed.
