Get in Touch with Nature – Right on your Doorstep!

 Cambridge Nature Festival 25th May – 30th June 2024

After a very successful first two years the Cambridge Nature Festival is back to get us more in touch with the nature on our doorsteps!

This year the festival has a river / water theme, but there will be activities concerning all aspects of the natural world.

The third annual Cambridge Nature Festival will include over 90 events and activities with something for all ages, abilities and interests. There will be hands-on creative activities, nature walks, live music, bat punt safaris, BioBlitzes and much more. Most of the events will be free or affordable and will take place in Cambridge and the surrounding countryside.

The Cambridge Nature Festival is being organised by the River Cam CAN (Climate Action through Nature) project which is hosted by Cambridge Past, Present and Future and part of Cambridge Nature Network, a partnership of organisations working hard to increase the amount of nature in our area.

The festival is being supported by the National Lottery Community Fund.  Events will also be run by The Wildlife Trust BCN, The National Trust, RSPB, Cambridge City Council, Cambridge Sports Lake Trust, South Cambridgeshire District Council, Magog Trust and Cambridge University Botanic Garden and many, many more!

Festival Organiser Penelope Chaney says “We’re excited to bring you another great programme of nature-based events and activities from bat hunting and guided walks with wildlife experts to creative sessions and the screening of wildlife films. This is a great opportunity to connect with and explore nature and your local environment! There will be events for all ages and interests – we’re looking forward to seeing you!”

The Festival will kick-off with a Launch event on 25th May 11:00am – 3pm at Logan’s Meadow in Cambridge with free events and activities for all the family – guided nature walks, the secret sounds of nature, storytelling, green wood working, & stalls for nature and our planet.
