Our inaugural Walk for Wildlife - raising money for Herefordshire Wildlife Trust’s Reserves Appeal on a walk though beautiful Herefordshire countryside.

The walk will run through the heart of Herefordshire from the historic Lugg Meadow on the outskirts of Hereford city following the picturesque River Lugg north through riverside pastures to finish at Queenswood Country Park & Arboretum.

The walk will cover 12.5 miles and will follow public footpaths as well as routes across private land, opened exclusively for this event.

Sponsorship

Entrants can in addition seek sponsorship with all money raised going to our Reserves Appeal. The entrant who raises the most money will win a hamper of Wildlife Trust Goodies!
