Natural Skills Programme - Natural Navigation

This event has finished Took place on: Saturday, 3rd Dec 2016

This workshop will help you identify natural signs for navigation using the sun, wind, plants and animals.

Natural navigation is a traditional skill for finding direction using signs in nature to tell if you are facing north, south, east or west. You will deepen your connection with nature and heighten your senses while getting to know trees in the park. During this workshop you will also learn how to identify trees in winter from their buds, twigs, bark and shape.

Remember to wrap up warm and bring waterproofs as we will be spending most of the time outside, enjoying the winter light.

Cost: £10
