Jersey's National Trust hosts virtual environment festival

Jersey's National Trust will virtually host its fourth environmental festival.

The #LoveNature festival will take place during half term, from Monday 25 to Sunday 31 May.

Islanders can find activities online and download them to do whenever they like rather than following a timetable.

Organisers hope it will encourage people 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.

There's lots of talks and lots of wonderful videos that the rangers have done, the whole idea is that you have a look at those videos, but then you go down and explore those sites on your own, so you can discover the beautiful wildlife that's in St Ouen's Bay.

CHARLES ALLUTO, JERSEY'S NATIONAL TRUST CHIEF EXECUTIVE

Sites including the wild orchid fields, and National Trust areas in St Ouen's Bay will have new self-guided walks and family friendly activities for households to take part in.

There will also be a range of videos about wild flowers and the work of the Countryside Rangers available online.

Jersey Botanist, Tina Hill, will be talking about wild flowers and plants found in and around St Ouen through a series of short videos. Wildlife photographer Romano da Costa has created a bird spotter guide to the visiting birds in and around St Ouen's pond.
