Join a Backyard Nature Wild Walk in Hackney!
A small adventure for kids to take their families on, exploring the forgotten wild places, play spaces and green patches our Backyard has to offer...
We are leading three Backyard Nature Wild Walks as part of the London National Park City Festival!
These walks will start at
Dalston’s Iceland store in Kingsland Shopping Centre at 4pm on Monday 22nd July.
Shoreditch Iceland store on Hoxton St at 11:30am on Wednesday 24th July
Hackney Central Iceland store on Mare St, by Hackney Central Station at 2:30pm on Friday 26th July
We will help your family discover local green patches nearby, spot the species of birds and butterflies, the plants and trees and the places to play and explore. It’s a chance to meet other families, make new friends and discover how wild our borough really is…
Outdoor People lead Wild Walks every month and we'd love you to join us. One mum recently said:
“I would never have done anything like this with the kids… We now go on little walks, on little hunts for things, and the kids are picking up sticks and leaves that we have to keep at home! So, we’re all in touch with nature now.”
Don't forget to bring water, a small snack and weather-appropriate and waterproof clothing (suncream if it's hot!)! We have a supply of children's waterproof clothing provided by Muddy Puddles and a few adult jackets too, get in touch with us if you need either. Don’t let the lovely British weather stop us having fun!!
We have limited numbers, so please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot for you and your family, and your friends too.
Given the limited space, please do let us know if your circumstances change and you are unable to join us. Please also provide us with a contact number (in case you can't find us) and any special needs or dietary requirements.
This particular Backyard Nature Wild Walk is supported by Semble, we’ll be sharing more about why soon… It is also part of the special celebration to launch London becoming the world’s first National Park City and will include a very special Mini Opening Ceremony!
