BMC 'Hills to Oceans' litter picking walk in the Chilterns

Saturday 29 Jun ~ 10:00 AM

In support of 2019's Year of Green Action, the Chilterns Conservation Board has teamed up with the BMC and its Hills 2 Oceans initiative with the aim of removing as much litter from our hills, mountains and crags as possible so it doesn’t end up in our oceans. Join us on a 9 mile walk starting from Princes Risborough and following the Ridgeway National Trail up to Whiteleaf Hill with its mysterious chalk cross and far reaching views, where we will find out more about this chalk downland nature reserve, its history and how it’s managed for wildlife. We will do some litter picking around the car park before continuing through stunning beech woodlands and an iron age hillfort on our way to Buckmoorend Farm where we will stop for lunch. Buckmoorend Farm is a small, family run farm which is part of the Chequers Estate and steeped in history. We will take a different route back to Princes Risborough, through wooded hills.
