Join in a Walk in OUR National Parks

The Lake District, Exmoor, the Peaks and the Broads. On Saturday August 15th, they’ll be filled with 38 Degrees members.

We’ve teamed up with the Campaign for National Parks to put on fun-filled walks in every National Park in England. [1] A professional guide will share the history of our stunning peaks, valleys, moors, and the wildlife that lives there.

Are you free on Saturday 15th August? Everyone is welcome – the more the merrier – and we’ll be going at a pace that suits the whole group. So feel free bring children, friends, and relatives along.

Click below to see details of the walks and to register for one. They’ll be between an hour and three hours long, accessible by public transport, and free to take part in. All you need to bring is sturdy footwear, your packed lunch … and a raincoat just in case!

I can’t make it, but I’d like to be involved in the campaign for our National Parks 

Our National Parks are our nation’s best wild spaces. But they’re at risk. The Government’s gone back on its word to protect them from fracking – a dirty way of drilling for gas. [1] And they’ve slashed budgets used to upkeep paths and manage forests. It’s forcing park authorities to sell off land and look for money from private companies. [2]

Together we’re campaigning to protect our National Parks and now it’s time to come together just to enjoy them. [3] Saturday August 15th is a chance to do just that – to get out and meet like-minded people at the height of summer when the countryside is at its most beautiful.

So can you come along to a walk in one of England’s beautiful National Parks? Click below to find out more and to let other 38 Degrees members know if they can expect you:

PPS: Did you miss this yesterday? 38 Degrees members are also meeting up around the UK on Saturday 22nd August – to collect signatures for the petition against TTIP. Most people still haven’t heard of this dangerous deal, so it’s urgent that we spread the word together.

Already, over 200 events have been set up, and thousands of 38 Degrees members are making plans together for Saturday 22nd August. Click here to join your local team:
