s around the area with wildlife walks for adults at places such as George’s Hayes, Croxall Lakes, Gentleshaw Common and Christian Fields. Families will also be able to enjoy events tailored for younger people.

Duncan Coleman, from Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, said: “We aim to engage people in Lichfield with their local green spaces and encourage them to get outside in relation to improving well-being, confidence and mental and physical health.

“The walks are very much aimed at adults, with the Wildplay sessions being family drop in sessions which are very much focused on parents getting out and about in their local green spaces and spending time with their children in the natural environment.”

A full list of all Wild About Lichfield walks and sessions can be found on the Staffordshire Wildlife Trust website.
