There’s no end to the benefits of getting outdoors, which our Ranger Service knows very well.

A good walk done regularly can lead to significant improvements to your physical health and mental wellbeing.

And you could help care for our cherished green spaces, if you can spare a little time and elbow grease.

There are opportunities for both with our Rangers, as they’re hosting a series of health walks and litter picks over September and October.
