Time & Location

29 Oct 2023, 12:00 – 16:00

Prestwich Forest Park, Philips Park MTB Trail, Whitefield, Prestwich, Manchester M45 7QJ, UK


Who can come?

This event is open to everyone! Mushroom enthusiasts, nature nerds and people who just like getting outdoors are all welcome. Well-behaved dogs who are kept on a lead when necessary are also very welcome to join.

What is a wild walk?

They’re a  chance for us to learn, connect and enjoy nature together - we explore a  green space at a leisurely pace, pointing out interesting plants or fungi we  come across. Sometimes we’ll talk about wild food and tasty  things you can forage, but this isn’t the primary focus. It’s a space  for us to share our knowledge rather than flaunt it - we’re far from  professional botanists so can’t identify everything and encourage others  to share what they know too!
