Avon Wildlife Trust and The Nest Collective to deliver nature walks this June

Posted on: 28 Mar 2022

Explore one of the most beautiful nature reserves in the Bristol area.


The Nest Collective is teaming up with Avon Wildlife Trust to present a guided day of discovery at Lawrence Weston Moor this summer.


On Saturday 4 June, participants will learn from a leading nature expert about Bristol's biodiverse havens, and then enjoy improvised performances from special guest musicians.


Visit The Nest Collective's event webpage for more information and to buy tickets.



Between Lawrence Weston and the M5 lies a small pocket of nature, a refuge for Bristol's most endangered species, the water vole, and home to old oak trees, ponds, and deer, which lucky attendees may be able to catch a glimpse of.


The guided walk will be led by Seed Sistas, experts in herbal medicine following decades of study and clinical practice. One of their main focuses is sharing sensory herbalism in order to cultivate change through eco-activism with community medicine garden projects.


Music on the day comes courtesy of composer, lyricist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Arran Glass, whose songs have previously featured on the BBC's Countryfile, with other appearances on ITV and Channel 4.


The event comes courtesy of Avon Wildlife Trust, the largest local charity working to protect wildlife and inspire people in the West of England, and The Nest Collective, a leading force in contemporary and cross-cultural folk music.


Visit the latter's event webpage for more information and to grab yourself some tickets.
