Shropshire Love Nature is a festival of activities and events across the county to involve, inform and enthuse Shropshire residents and visitors about the wonderful local nature we share and about solutions to the current crisis it is facing.
Events are being planned by organisations, community groups and individuals, across Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin.
Together, we’ll all be working hard to make sure that these four weeks are a massive celebration of Shropshire Nature. With so many creative ideas and solutions being put forward, the festival will help spread ideas and inspiration for ways that we can all help support the ongoing health and resilience of our beautiful Shropshire environment – whether in roadside verges, newly seeded meadows, wildlife gardens, community woodlands or town parks and green spaces.
The festival involves many and varied organisations and groups hosting events around the county celebrating nature and helping to highlight solutions to biodiversity and habitat loss we are experiencing.
All events will be listed on our Facebook page: https://m.facebook.com/ShropshireLoveNatureFestival
Event Dates: 15 August 2021 to 12 September 2021
