WALK FOR NATURE

31/03/2019 08:30 - 12:00
WALK FOR NATURE

It is time for BirdLife Malta’s Walk for Nature again! 

This annual Walk for Nature encourages children and families to enjoy spending time outdoors in the beautiful Maltese spring and raises awareness for the importance of nature conservation. This year, the walk will start at Għajn Tuffieħa and finish at Għadira near Għadira Nature Reserve.

This year's theme will focus on ‘wildflowers’. During this walk, you will be looking out for all the different colours you can see and what the spring has to offer!

The event is organised to help raise funds towards BirdLife Malta’s efforts to support educational resources that connect young people with nature. This year, with the money collected we will buy nature explorer kits to use with members during nature activities!

Those who raise at least €5 will be given a goody bag and at the end of the walk, there will be a prize-giving ceremony in which the highest three donations will win awards for their amazing sponsorship effort!

Route

This year’s Walk for Nature is approximately 7km long and it will take us through Majjistral Nature and History Park on a route which is considered an easy/moderate difficulty one. To enjoy the beautiful coastal scenery and experience the best of nature during the Maltese spring, this year we  have decided to use country paths which means that they will NOT be accessible for pushchairs, scooters or bikes.

BirdLife Malta will meet at 08:30 at Għajn Tuffieħa (in the parking near the old Riviera) and the walk will commence at 09:00. The finishing point will be Għadira, near BirdLife Malta’s Għadira Nature Reserve, at around noon.

Participation

Participation is free for those who raise funds. A donation of €5 is required for those who don’t raise funds (to be paid on site). The event is open to all and we encourage BirdLife Malta members and friends, together with schools to join in. Children under 8 years should be accompanied by an adult.

Transport

Transport back from Għadira to the starting point at Għajn Tuffieħa will be available for €2 per person at the end of the event. Please make sure you book the transport back during the registration before the walk.

Please also download this sponsor sheet and remember to bring it along with you on the day together with any money you collect. Give the sponsor sheet to children so they can raise money and have the chance to win a prize. Schools should ensure that children have the school stamp on the sponsor sheet in order to accumulate points for BirdLife Malta's Dinja Waħda environmental education school programme.
