The Shetland Nature Festival

Shetland Nature Festival

Zoom Shetland Nature Festival was established in 2007 and covers all aspects of Shetland’s unique natural heritage. With a programme that includes everything from guided walks to family days out and evening talks there's something for everyone.

The festival also incorporates a number of events in celebration of European Geoparks Week to encourage interaction and learning opportunities with Shetland's stunning and varied geology.

Zoom Shetland Amenity Trust works with a number of different partners to deliver this event, including RSPB Scotland and Scottish Natural Heritage.  For the past few years, Our Dynamic Earth have also joined the event, delivering a series of workshops on various topics.

For natural heritage, this truly is a festival not to be missed.  The event programme is usually uploaded around June each year and the event Zoom typically takes place in the first week of July.
