City Nature Challenge and Coronavirus: Stay Safe, Stay Home

Posted On: 7 Apr 2020   |   Posted By: Bristol Natural History Consortium

Time connecting with nature will be vitally important to everyone's health and wellbeing over the coming weeks and we have launched a new programme of social distancing friendly activities as part of City Nature Challenge. You can find our latest full statement here.
As you take part in City Nature Challenge, please follow the strict government guidance on social distancing.
1. Take part from home: You will be amazed at how much wildlife you can discover right on your doorstep, watching out for wildlife from your window, balcony or in your garden.
2. Stick to Government guidance on outdoor exercise : If you are taking part whilst on your daily walk, please use your legal outdoor exercise time responsibly.
We will continue to monitor the government advice, including the review planned for 13 April, and will update our statement accordingly.
Keep safe and best wishes from The Festival of Nature Team
