Get out into nature this summer

Published: 07 July 2022

Throughout the summer holidays Sevenoaks District Council is running FREE wildlife trails in five locations across the District. Together with the North West Kent Countryside Partnership, we’ve created eco-trails for the whole family to enjoy.

The trails will be set up between 22 July to 4 September in Crockham Hill Common, Farningham Woods, Hosey Common, Oxenhill Shaw Woods and Shoreham Woods. They’ll explore some beautiful nature spots and be filled with fun facts and quizzes along the way.

There will also be a chance to win one of five Eco-Hampers that include a reusable, patterned shopping bag, a bamboo hot drinks cup, a pack of wild seed flowers and lots more. All you need to do is tag us in your favourite wildlife photo from the trail on Facebook (@SevenoaksDC). All entries will be put in a prize draw with the winners picked at random.

We would be grateful if you could promote the trails in your community. For more information on the trails, where they start and the competition T&Cs, visit

If you have any questions about the trails or the Council’s Net Zero work please do not hesitate to get in contact. We are keen to know what communities are up to and how we can help each other to have a positive impact on our local environment and tackle the important issue of Climate Change.
