These workshops are primarily aimed at Mountain Leaders and Instructors or trainees working towards those awards. Anyone working outside with, or leading, groups in the hills or mountains of the UK should however, find these workshops of interest. We generally attract a like minded keen group of people who get along with each other giving the day a fun feeling in which to learn.
The workshop will respond to whatever the environment and weather throw at us on the day of the workshop. Key topics might include;
- Geological introductions
- Identifying and remembering flowers
- Recognising the birds in the mountains
- Reading the landscape
- The work that water and ice does
You will need to dress for the weather and expect to be 'on the hill' for about five hours, bring a packed lunch. You will find a digital camera and/or a smart phone, pen/pencil and notebook handy too.
