About the Course
Can we go on a nature walk or on a safari while we are in 'lockdown'? With a bit of imagination and our five senses let's see if we can make this possible. Apart from our imagination and senses we may need a window to look out from (a balcony, terrace or a garden would be a bonus!), a notepad and pencil/pen/sketchpens and possibly some old plastic containers or any unused container. It is fascinating to see how we let the world go by as we get on with being busy: there is a world of insects, plants, birds, animals and people around us that we can discover. So let's embark on this safari and find out more.
