Manchester Festival of Nature at Heaton Park, Manchester, 26 June 2022, free entry - Visit now

Head to the Manchester Festival of Nature at Heaton Park this June, for a family day out jam-packed with fun outdoor activities and nature-focused adventures.

The North-West is home to some phenomenal organisations that are working to reverse the decline in nature. Now, The Wildlife Trust for Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside, the Cheshire Wildlife Trust, the City of Trees, Action for Conservation, RSPB, The National Trust and RHS Bridgewater (to name a few!) are treating us to a glorious day of outdoor activities, talks and performance to celebrate wildlife, experience nature and brighten up and enlighten our worlds.

Take part in tree and plant identification and discover the plants and creatures living on our urban doorsteps. Get busy with bushcraft, eco-therapy, natural crafts, wildflower planting, forest school skills, bug hotel building and den building.

Find out more about bees and how we can help them through creating ‘nectar cafes’, planting wildflowers and opportunities to volunteer on many great projects across the region.

Dig out your best stripes, wings and headband boppers and ‘bee yourself’. The festival hopes to raise awareness of the decline in bees and the huge importance of these stripy black and yellow pollinators. Families are invited to dress up and share their best insect fancy dress photos with the festival on Twitter using the hashtag #MFoN.

Be inspired by the Manchester Festival of Nature as you rediscover the natural wonderland of Heaton Park, brought to life by the stellar work of the Royal Horticultural Society, Canal & River Trust, Action for Conservation, Sustrans, Chester Zoo, Manchester Museum and many other community and volunteering groups.

Don’t miss this wonderfully wild day out.
