Wildfest is a festival celebrating local wildlife and the groups that work to for nature across the region, which will be held in Watford’s Cassiobury Park on Saturday 8 July 2023. It promises to be a great day out for all those who appreciate the wilder side of life or, who want to know more about local wildlife and wild spaces and what they can do to help them. Plus, there will be lots of free activities for families to take part in, providing fun ways to learn about and engage with nature.
The event has been organised by Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust’s Wilder Communities Team, with the help of Watford Borough Council. It is being supported by a host of local community, wildlife and conservation groups and organisations, all of whom will be represented with information stands. These include, Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust, RSPB Watford, The Hertfordshire & Middlesex Bat Group, Watford Woodcraft Folk, Friends of Cassiobury Park and many more. Volunteers will be on hand to share their stories of what they are doing locally and show visitors how they can get involved.
Nature crafts, storytelling, bird watching, sweep netting and river dipping are just some of the other experiences that will be able to be enjoyed on the day. Plus, there will be plenty of opportunities to pick up hints and tips to help our natural world, such as, advice on saving water.
Wildfest is free to come along to and will be running from 10am-4pm. Everyone is welcome. Find out more at www.hertswildlifetrust.org.uk/events/wildfest-2023.
