Most of us are lucky to live a stone's throw away from a park, woodland, waterway and heritage site, but sadly many people do not visit these places. We want to change that and our urban trail offer does just that.
By designing trails in collaboration with the community and forging local connections with conservation, history and recreation groups, we create trails tailored to a location. We also create family-friendly quests and school resources to encourage self-led visits.
Sprucing up an urban woodland trail, park, meadow or pathway with interactive activities can facilitate all kinds of new discoveries in urban spaces that might have otherwise been overlooked.
The more playful interaction citizens have with their natural surroundings, the more empathetic and connected they will feel as a community to these places - resulting in an increased awareness of, and shared approach to nurturing wild spaces.
We work closely with nature, heritage and the outdoor recreation sector to co-design permanent waymarked trails and activity-focussed interpretation in your local parks, woodlands or waterways. We emphasis fun, short and accessible walking and cycle routes.
Wild Walks, History Hikes
To boost physical activity and increase conservation volunteering in Hounslow, we partnered with Intelligent Health to work with local groups and the community to design a permanent waymarked trail, interpretation boards and child-friendly activity guides.
Doodle Tree Trail
To help bring special local trees to life for children, the Heritage Lottery Fund supported Nature Nurture to help kids discover interesting facts about the trees minutes from their high street. We linked the interactive trail to popular children’s themes, such as Harry Potter, and the trail guide provided spaces to draw and write about what they spotted along the way.
Bring your wild urban spaces to life.
We’ve worked with an array of national organisations with initiatives all over the UK. These include The National Trust, The Conservation Volunteers, The Canal and River Trust, The Land Trust and The Woodland Trust. We can explore your site and work with you design how to maximise the potential of your nature and heritage to engage the whole community in activities that boost physical activity levels, support wellbeing and promote volunteering.
