Walton Wanders - John Muir Discovery Award


Join WCC and the Parks Trust and achieve the nationally recognised environmental John Muir Discovery Award. We have chosen open space locations within the Walton boundary for you to independently discover and explore over a 3-week period from the 2nd to the 20th August, using our nature themed activity sheets.
Activities will include Nature Bingo; Sketching and natural art in the park, pond investigations, small 5 minibeast safari and many more fun, nature inspired activities to engage the whole family and for you to complete in your own time.
All locations are fully accessible and are great opportunities to encourage nature inspired health and wellness walks. They are also good spots for summer picnics and relaxation!
There will be a launch event on the 2nd August where we will complete activities based on the 4 challenges required for the John Muir Award:
Discover – local greenspace(s)
Explore – spend time exploring greenspace(s) & completing activities.
Conserve – Join in with organised conservation projects to ‘Make a Difference’ to your local greenspaces.
Share – create & keep a record book/journal of all your activities.
There will be a Conservation task on Friday 20th August when we will all come together as a group and receive our Award certificates.
We will also be holding a guided cycle ride on the second weekend and an environmental task in the second week of the program.
The Award is open to everyone in the Walton Community area and can be completed individually or as a family group. To book your places, please email events@waltoncommunitycouncil.gov.uk
The John Muir Award is a nationally recognised award environmental award scheme for everyone. It’s non-competitive, inclusive and accessible. To achieve the Award you need to Discover, Explore, Conserve and Share greenspaces. www.johnmuirtrust.org
