Men’s wellbeing guided walk at RSPB Ham Wall

Key information

To coincide with men’s health week (12 – 18 June 2024), we are hosting a men’s wellbeing walk around RSPB Ham Wall. This walk provides an opportunity for men to come together and experience nature all that it has to offer at RSPB Ham Wall. As well as benefitting your physical health, being outside in nature can also benefit your mental wellbeing. The charity ‘Mind’ explains how it can improve your mood, reduce feelings of stress and anger, and feel more relaxed.

Join us for a 10.30am start for a 2.5 hour guided walk around the reserve, taking in the beauty of the reserve at springtime. As we explore the reserve, we might hear the delightful croaking song of Iberian water frogs, the boom of a male bittern or see darting dragonflies.

Booking essential – a ticket only event. Advanced bookings only.
