Learn...

Evidence shows that learning in the natural environment improves knowledge and understanding, helping us recognise the impact we have on the environment now and in the future.

Take responsibility...

... by getting involved in activities that take responsibility for nature. Make bird feeders, learn about minimum impact principles, collect litter or plastics or campaign and raise money for a cause.

Planting a Tree

Get Active...

Journey by foot, wheel or water... walk, run, climb, bike, canoe... Spending time outside improves physical & mental well being and guard against obesity, and reduce the symptoms of stress.
