What we'll do

Have you ever wanted to learn how to track animals,… creep up on them silently,… to observe their behaviour up close?… Then this is the course for you! Ever wondered as you are walking in the countryside…. what was it that left that track beside a muddy puddle? I’m sure you’ll agree that getting near to animals in the wild is very difficult… and seems almost impossible. Just when you think you’re getting close… off they go … and you’re left wondering how on earth to do it. On this Animal Wisdom Day, we’ll show you how to move as silently as a fox, just like the Apache Indians did when they wanted to get close to wildlife. We’ll play fun nature awareness games together, so you can discover many exciting facts about our native animals, their tracks and their behaviour. After this course, whenever you go out, you’ll look at y...

Hannah at Natural Pathways

Hannah has been teaching bushcraft skills and nature awareness to adults and children close to two decades. She also runs courses for schools and youth groups. She is well known for her ability to pass on her skills in a relaxed and engaging manner. Hannah was inspired by teachings of Tom Brown Jr, well-known author and founder of the Tracker School in America. Tom Brown grew up along side a native American from the Apache tribe learning many valuable Earth living skills that he continues to pass on to many people through his trainings. As well as attending courses in America with Tom Brown, Hannah has attended a year’s course on Primitive Survival Skills with Trackways here in the UK.

Activities

On this tracking and nature awareness course we will unfold, for you and your children: Animal Tracks: You’ll learn about the tracks of our wildlife so you will know how to tell if the track you've found is a badger, squirrel, deer or mouse. Animal Families: You will find out how the animals are related. Gaits: You’ll have great fun learning to move just like wild animals and this gives you a powerful insight into their behaviour. Fox Walk: Do you want to know how to move silently through any environment? We’ll show you how to do it -- and more importantly -- how not to do it! Learn this, and you’ll soon be sneaking up on your friends and family and, hopefully, some wild life-- and they won’t know you’re even there! Peripheral Vision: Discovering how to use wide-angle vision to observe wild life. Night Hunters: We will play this fun nature awareness game ‘Night Hunters’ so you and your child can picture yourselves being a wild animal stalking its prey. Fox the Fox: One of o...

Reviews

“Thankyou for the Animal Wisdom course last Sunday. Michael and I really enjoyed it... My favourite bits were the Fox walk and peripheral vision exercises and the Sit Spot... I found them quite spiritual and was left with an idea that normally our senses are shut down because they are so overloaded...” Graeme Booth
