Henley’s Great Big Green Week kicks off on Saturday, 8 June with a FREE day of activities for anyone and everyone to enjoy. Join us in exploring nature on our doorstep at Mill Meadows at our Nature Discovery Day!

We have drop-in activities programmed throughout the day for all ages – come and take part in the Guided Wildflower Walk, Tree Trail, Butterfly and Moth Safari, Bug Hunt, Pond Dipping and more. Keen gardeners can collect free native wildflower seeds or plants at Greener Henley’s stall and learn about our Nature Squared campaign. You can chat with local conservation groups about how we can protect and restore nature locally – why not do some pond dipping with Chilterns Chalk Streams Project, or learn why Dark Skies are so important for wildlife with CPRE.

Bat, toad, moth and butterfly, bird, bug, tree, and wildflower experts will also be on hand to reveal the nature living all around us – from beetles and bats to buttercups. Budding photographers can take part in a wildlife photography session, and if you want to be amongst the first few members of Henley Bat Group, come on by!
