Discover the forest and rewild yourself

On a Trees for Life Forest Discovery Week you will connect to the natural world by immersing yourself in the wild Highlands and learn skills such as:

  • wildlife tracking
  • plant and animal identification
  • bird language
  • foraging
  • wildlife watching
  • mindfulness in nature
  • and more

Learning these nature awareness skills helps us to see the world in a new way and can enrich our lives wherever we may live. During the course of this fun and eye-opening week participants will have time to really immerse themselves in nature as well as sharing the company of other nature enthusiasts!

You don’t need to be an expert or a naturalist, you just need to have the curiosity to learn, discover and connect to the natural world. There will also be free time so that you can relax, wander, explore and cultivate your own connection to nature at your own pace.
