Wilder Kent Awards.  We are excited to announce that the AGM will be followed by the presentation of the first Wilder Kent Awards. Schools and communities have been taking action to create a Wilder Kent. This is an opportunity to showcase some of the amazing achievements made this year.

We are introducing this award to recognise schools and community groups that are helping to restore nature by taking positive action to promote a Wilder Kent.

These awards acknowledge the work of schools and community groups that are helping adults and children reconnect with nature. Their action benefits us locally and helps tackle the global environmental threats we all face.

The Marsh Volunteer Awards

We will be celebrating the contribution of some of our volunteers who have been nominated by their peers. The Marsh Awards celebrate the outstanding contributions of volunteers who are committed to social, cultural and environmental causes.
