The Trust is staging its fourth environmental festival - #LoveNature supported by Jersey Electricity, but this year the festival will be a ‘virtual’ one, so you can choose and download what activities you want to do and when to do them rather than having to gather together and follow a timetable.
Staged during the half term, from 25th to 31st May and set in and around St Ouen’s Bay in Jersey’s National Park, the event coincides with and showcases the wild orchids in all their glory at Le Noir Pré. The aim of the festival is to encourage Islanders and visitors to discover sites in St Ouen’s Bay such as La Mielle de Morville, St Ouen’s Pond – La Mare au Seigneur and the wild orchid fields at Le Noir Pré.
Nature enthusiasts can find out about the life of a Ranger through a series of videos showing what happens ‘behind the scenes’ and enjoy self-guided trails in and around Mont Grantez and La Mielle de Morville.
Local Botanist Tina Hull lifts the lid on the magic and folklore of the wild flowers and plants found in and around St Ouen through a series of short videos, and Kazz Padidar gives us his tips on foraging.
Download everything you need to do a Rockpool ramble or a bug safari, litter loot or beach scavenger hunt or just learn a bit more about our wonderful natural coastal environment in this part of the Island.
