How will you experience, enjoy and find out more about your wild place(s)? How will you increase awareness and understanding?

You might:

  • Visit at different times of day and night, in different seasons, alone or with others.
  • Sit, look, listen and feel – engage your senses.
  • Identify and learn about habitats - and what lives and grows there.
  • Travel extensively – walk, camp, bike, canoe. Is there a route, trail or stream to follow?
  • Research the landscape, geology and cultural history.
  • Map your wild place. Highlight the features you think are significant – how are they connected to other aspects?
