The Nature Walk Bucket List

Last lesson, we looked at some of the places you can go to find your next nature walk. For example, national parks or nature reserves etc. In this lesson, we will have a look at some of the finer details such as landscape and terrain. 

Think about your favorite places. Do you prefer a dappled woodland or a sunlit beach; a wild flower meadow or a rugged mountain peak? These are all things for you and your family to consider when planning out your nature walks.

Depending on where you live, you may have access to a variety of habitats all within easy distance.
