Buxton Wild Weeks is being launched by the South West Peak Landscape Partnership (SWPLP), Buxton Civic Association and Transition Buxton, bringing together schools and the community to support wildlife.

Jackie Wragg, youth engagement officer for the South West Peak Landscape Partnership, said: “We’d love to thank everyone who took part for their wonderful ideas. We aim to use some of the images submitted somewhere with Buxton Wild Weeks as there were so many great images.”

There are two Buxton Wild Weeks in 2021: from Monday May 24 and from Monday July 5. Local schoolchildren will take part in environmental activities and members of the community will be encouraged to connect with, enjoy and support their local wildlife.

Buxton Wild Weeks are supported by the South West Peak Landscape Partnership funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Buxton Civic Association, Transition Buxton and the Buxton Advertiser.
