What’s the Idea?
Join a virtual nature walk, looking at minibeasts, birds, wild foods, trees, tracks and more. All in the wilds of North East Scotland.
What’s the story
Every Thursday at 13:30 Ruaraidh and Stephen lead a 45-minute nature walk in the wilds of Scotland.
This idea sprung from the Nature Walks for Wellbeing that they lead in person (outside of lockdown) with the charity Nature 4 Health.
It’s a fun and friendly session suitable for the whole family with Q&A interactivity.
People should do this because…?
It’s free! Ruaraidh and Stephen both have over a decade of experience leading family nature sessions around the country. Since they love what they do, they are fun and inspiring.
Get ideas for things to look out for and do in your local environment. Like bird watching after building your own bird hide.
It is also a wee taste of Scotland beamed live to your home or device.
How do you do it?
One of us (Ruaraidh or Stephen) sits at a computer at home hosting the event while the other person goes out into nature with a camera phone and mic to lead the walk.
We investigate exciting and interesting things in the wild from skulls and animal poo to minibeasts and rock pooling.
We also get folk to join in as much or as little as they like.
Stuff you may need
A phone, tablet, computer or device with an internet connection to join the session, via the Zoom application or website.
