Bringing the Colne Valley Park indoors…

Based on the newest government advice, we are allowed to enjoy our countryside and nature, but we must STAY ALERT and continue maintaining social distancing. Now is the perfect time to appreciate all the little things nature gives us from your doorstep. However, because of the current situation, for some people, accessing your local countryside and exploring the Colne Valley Regional Park is still difficult.

The outside is a crucial part of maintaining our health and wellbeing.  We are therefore hoping at the Colne Valley Regional Park to keep you connected with your local countryside and nature. We will be doing our best to bring the outdoors, indoors through technology and the comfort of your home.  We very much hope this time gives you a good opportunity to get to know the Colne Valley Park a bit more for the sunny days ahead, when our freedom is returned.

The Colne Valley has something for everyone

“Colne Valley Nature Explorers”  is aimed at our younger followers (although adults can also enjoy these activites), with workshops, activities and learning materials. Many of these are in line with the National Curriculum and we hope they prove to be both useful and fun when learning from home or taking your daily exercise.

Come with us on a digital journey, showcasing the Colne Valley. See the signs of Autumn in the Valley, learn more about our current challenges and what we offer to enrich your lives and wellbeing. We hope this is an opportunity for many of you to Explore more of the Colne Valley through your technology, but also a time when you can be inspired to plan for walks and places to visit when normality is resumed.

We are hosting a range of Nature Workshops. Both through the Iver Environment Centre and our own workshops. These sessions will help children and adults to discover nature through their technology and provide a great, interactive experience. There are a range of diverse nature programmes including, workshop for our River Rangers, plants, Water wildlife and many more.
