Create a community nature trail

Creating greener communities benefits us all. Spending time outside helps our physical and mental health while shared green spaces bring people from all backgrounds together.  

Knowing the power of biodiverse places, we’re proud to have partnered with the RSPB and More Human this summer to help you share the nature where you live.

In just a few simple steps, creating a Community Nature Trail helps more people enjoy and appreciate their surroundings. Or if you’re concerned nature is lacking where you live, simple nature activities like planting flowers in your street, sowing wildflower seeds or providing a ‘nature café’ are well worth sharing with your neighbours. 

Find out how to be your own trail-blazer below!

What is a community nature trail?

A Community Nature Trail is a local map of spaces, activities, events, and projects that bring you closer to nature. It’s created by the community, for the community.   

Whether it’s permanent, for a season, or just for a weekend, a Community Nature Trail is a great way to showcase local social, cultural, and recreational activities involving nature. Creating your nature trail is the perfect free summer holiday activity too and can be used for schools and businesses. 

You can create your own trail or find one near you.

*Please note, if you know of nesting or young animals, you might not want to attract too much attention with your nature trail.
