4. Become a Nature Knowledge Expert with Expert Tuition
Follow Steve Backshall on an amazing journey through the wild world and learn some of the most mind-blowing facts about nature! Become an accredited nature knowledge expert and the source of all animal knowledge. Do you know which common insects roast their would-be predators with heat? Which animal has the most powerful bite, or where it hasn’t rained for nearly 2 million years!? By the end of the course you will do – and you’ll also be a Steve Backshall accredited Nature Knowledge Expert - with a certificate to prove it!! You’ll need to get your pen and paper ready as each of the six lessons will begin with a quiz, where Steve asks you ten questions about our amazing natural world. He will then go through each question, giving the answer as well as other incredible facts, fascinating knowledge and stories about his own adventures. Steve will then set a fun assignment. This could be a written piece, like arguing for or against the reintroduction of wolves in Scotland, or a creative piece – a drawing, painting, or poem inspired by something you’ve learned. On hand to give you feedback is Will Nicholls - Zoologist, professional wildlife camera operator and Steve’s associate. Will films wildlife around the world for natural history television, and his zest for adventure is unmatched. You will also have the opportunity to meet and chat with fellow students in the Nature Knowledge Expert community, so get your pen ready and prepare to be taken on a fantastical journey around our planet.

9. Mindful Forage & Wild Plant Learning + Homemade tea
Based on the season, you will be gently introduce into the magical world of plants, using our senses to identify around 15 wild edible plants and flowers that provide us with both food and medicine. Packed with vitamins and minerals they are a true superfood, and a magical addition to the stew pot of salad both. We will also be shown any poisonous plants that we encounter, making sure we learn how to recognise and understand them so we can safely avoid them. This is a mindful foraging walk that will ensure everyone feels confident in naming and identifying each of the plants, along with how best to prepare them. This herbal knowledge has long been our heritage, and reconnecting with the landscape in this way is both very simple and often quite profound. It is a lesson that will last a lifetime! We will then have tea and cakes on the Heath with some of the plants we've collected together. Meet our host! Tamara Colchester is a wild food teacher and writer who guides people in the old ways of foraging as a route to a simpler, more connected way of life. Trained by renowned wild food teacher and author Ffyona Campbell, she now travels the UK reintroducing people to our wild heritage. Incorporating her interest in psychotherapy and healing (she trained at Tavistock & Portman), she specialises in using foraging and tracking techniques as a means of helping those suffering from PTSD, Depression and Anxiety, as well as those who are simply interested in deepening their relationship with their environment and the food we eat.
