It's National Park Week!

One week in July is dedicated to the health of the UK environment!

Annual National Parks week, held 22nd – 29th July, champions everything unique and special about the UK's National Parks, and celebrates opportunities to get outside and discover them!

This dedicated week showcases the importance of good waste management while striving to improve the overall environment health of the UK outdoors.

The week encourages and enables the community to get involved, enjoy the outdoors, promote recycling and prevent littering, with the ultimate goal of getting our National Parks to zero waste.

Saving UK National Parks

A number of wildlife-friendly events are held throughout the week, many of which are designed to educate the British public about environmental waste; from treasure trails and seaside safaris to guided forest walks.

Several parks are taking on volunteers to help with conservation of wildlife and the natural landscape – from litter picking to cleaning rocks – to help revive the areas.

Wales's oldest nature reserve is Snowdonia National Parks, and the oldest National Park in the whole of the UK is the Peak District, both of which have events running through National Parks week.

The Lake District National Park is a registered UNESCO World Heritage Site – all of which shows how critical it is that these areas of outstanding natural beauty have adequate, long-term resources for their maintenance, management, and improvement.
