National Parks Week

National Parks Week is taking place between Mondayย 28th July and Sunday 3rd August. According to theย National Parks website,

“National Parks Week is an annual celebration of the amazing places, people, and things to be found within the boundaries of the 15 members of the National Parks family.ย The week is highlighted by events in a number of National Parks as well as the annual photography competition. The theme of this year’s National Parks Week is ‘Space to Grow’, a reference to our commitment to the future stewards of the country’s diverse landscapes.

Often, when we think of the future, of those who will look after the National Parks in the decades and centuries ahead, we think of young people. We think of the child catching his or her first fish, perhaps. But there is, too, the grandparent who is teaching that child to fish โ€“ who is instilling in him or her a respect and love of the UK’s natural beauty. This year’s National Parks Week honours everyone looking forward.”
