It is October and autumn has arrived: the most interesting season in terms of variety in nature. Leaves of ocher, yellow, red brown and purple fall from the trees, temperatures drop and impressive cloudscapes adorn the sky. As the days get shorter, our need for homely warmth increases. Nice under a blanket with a cup of hot tea and a good book or a wonderful day at the sauna. But autumn is also a great time to go out with the kids. Are you staying this month ’t Lennepserf? Then we have listed various activities in the area for you to complete your holiday or overnight stay.
October: IVN #2uurnatuur Challenge 2021
That nature is good for you is not news. You have probably noticed yourself that you feel different after a long walk in the forest or a day at the beach. Scientific research shows that we need to spend at least 120 minutes a week outside to notice a positive difference. Three hours yields the most positive reactions in terms of health, five hours is optimal for your sense of well-being. Still, we don't visit nature enough and we stay indoors more often, especially in the fall. To change that, the #2 hour nature challenge will start in October. Are you participating? Then receive an email every week with exciting challenges to go outside.

Thursday 14 October: Art lecture Frida Kahlo

Her intimate self-portraits, in which she explores her own identity and experiences, are famous. Visual artist and teacher Marianne Wilts will give a fascinating lecture about this special woman on Thursday evening 14 October in the Heerd. Tickets cost € 17,50 and can be ordered via www.cultuurpleinnoordveluwe.nl
Saturday October 23: Morning walk sheep herd
On Saturday 23 October, the sheep herd organizes an early bird walk. During this walk on the rendering clips you have the unique opportunity, together with a shepherd, to wander off the beaten track through the heath. The morning walk starts half an hour before sunrise and is mainly intended for people who want to take beautiful pictures. This is the perfect opportunity to shoot beautiful pictures of sheep on the heath with the rising sun. There is every opportunity to have a chat with the shepherd, but only at the start does he give a short introduction for the entire group. For more information, visit the website of Sheep herd Epe Heerde.
