This trail is all about getting back in touch with your primal side. It's lying in a wildflower meadow listening to the hum of bees. It's walking under the baking sun and pouring rain. It's survival skills and sustainability. It's the secret glimpse of deer on a quiet summer morning. It's feeling ALIVE!

Here in Yorkshire there are so many wonderful landscapes which are home to so much fascinating wildlife! On this trail your world will be opened up to the ancient arts of bushcraft, foraging, dry stone walling, habitat management, organic gardening and permaculture. Your desire to improve and protect the natural world can be satisfied by participation in beach cleans and citizen science. We want you to be able to share what you've experienced, and understand the workings of nature around you, so take a look at our Wildlife ID Page for more info. Below, we've narrowed down some of the best opportunities to step outside your comfort zone and learn about self-sufficiency, wildlife and low-impact living. You can also check out our Events Page to find other one-off activities over the summer.
