Community Day | Festival of Nature 2024

Sunday 9 June, multiple locations across the West of England

Festival of Nature is coming to your neighbourhood! Community Day is a day to celebrate the actions your community are taking for nature across the West of England region.

Look out for the map of activities coming in May and discover a new, local community group, garden or organisation helping people and planet on Sunday 9 June.

Festival of Nature and Avon Wildlife Trust have teamed up to help the West of England celebrate our green and blue spaces and encourage residents to be part of Team Wilder – a movement of people taking action for local nature.
