Explore and learn about the wildlife and plants living and growing in Luton’s Wigmore Valley Park County Wildlife site on Sunday 9 September from 10am until 1pm.
As autumn approaches we will start to enjoy the tones and fruits of this wild landscape, while the knapweeds and Michaelmas daisies provide a welcome splash of colour and plenty of nectar for butterflies and bumblebees.
This free nature walk is designed as a gentle Sunday morning stroll around the park enjoying the surroundings and will extend into the open countryside of neighbouring Hertfordshire.
Trevor Tween, our Senior Landscape and Ecology Officer, is leading the walk. He said: “Luton is an amazing place with the urban environment so close to the Chilterns’ area of outstanding natural beauty. We are really lucky to have such a diverse natural landscape right on our doorstep.”
No booking is necessary and all ages are welcome, although children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult. Please wear suitable outdoor clothing and footwear.
The walking group is meeting in the Sports Pavilion car park.
The walk is part of a series of walks run in partnership with the Groundwork Trust. Wigmore is the last walk in the current series. Follow this link for more information on the autumn/winter walk schedule
which will be appearing at the end of September. For more information please call us on 01582 547095.
