These trips in some of Britain’s most beautiful areas offer opportunities to learn new skills and help us get closer to nature
Wilderlands is a new project that aims to support nature in the UK by encouraging rewilding. This summer, it is hosting a series of “wild weekends” where people can spend time outdoors and learn more about conservation. The events, run by the people behind August’s Into the Wild festival, will take place every weekend from 21 May to 19 September in woods in Chiddinglye, West Sussex. All weekends feature bushcraft workshops (den-building, identifying birdsong), wild crafts (wood carving, flint knapping) and live music. Some have a specific focus, such as folklore, song or yoga, and most are family-friendly. Campers can pitch their own tents or hire bell tents or a woodland cabin.
