Natural History Museum - Virtual Race for Nature
Virtual Event34A Lamb's Conduit St, Holborn, London WC1N 3LE, UK
Mon 31st August 2020
Complete the Race for Nature in your local habitat. Instead of a dash to the finish line, see what creatures you can draw with the mapped path of your route. Run, walk, jog or wheel and see what you can create.
Before you head out, take a look at a map of your local area, look out for paths or roads that look like part of an animal or plant. Start with something easy, a snake will be much easier to create than a platypus! Take an outline of the animal you would like to create with you, so you can use it as a reference.
The event is free to enter and there will be prizes for those who hit our fundraising targets. Every step you take, each animal you create, and each £1 you raise, helps protect our planet!
