Ancient skills

This course will deepen your bond with the natural world by enabling you to begin reading the visual, aural and seasonal signs that make up the Language of Woods. 

You'll leave with a clear understanding of how to immerse yourself in woodland so that you can move through the landscape unobserved and see more wildlife in its natural state.  

The language of birds is still used by pre-industrial people to inform them of landscape events and the passage of predators.  It was once a skill that all of us knew and upon leaving, you won't experience nature in the same way again.
