NATUREWALK TRUST ACTIVITIES
Our Mission is to inspire people a love for nature, reverence & respect towards wildlife & its habitat. We carry out the following activities and events towards fulfilment of our mission: –
- Experience the nature:
As a part of our educational activities we do conduct nature trails wherein the participants are introduced to various facets of nature like Trees, Birds, Mammals, Insects, landscape and more. All these activities receive good response and are generally conducted on weekends.
Young generation is big part of our focus. Every Summer and Winter Holidays, we do conduct wildlife activities for kids. These includes slideshows, film shows, Craft and Wildlife Painting, Story Telling and more.
- Meet the experts:
We conduct Wildlife film Screenings wherein films on various facets of Wildlife are screened followed by interactive educational discussion. Very frequently, film makers themselves are present to screen and answer questions.
We are associated with many reputed Wildlife film makers across the country. We have a huge collection of Wildlife films focusing on Birds, Mammals, Insects, Reptiles, as well as issue focused documentaries. We do conduct Wildlife Film Festival titled WILD INDIA once a year. Along with films, we have many other activities like workshops, talks, quizzes. These festivals are very well attended enthusiastically by hundreds of people.
Every year, to encourage the hobby of birding, we also organize Bird fest, wherein various experts present their work related to Bird Research & Bird Conservation.
We do conduct wildlife related slideshow for schools, colleges and other like-minded organizations. Through slideshow we try to educate the participants about Wildlife, habitats and environment.
