The Wyre Community Land Trust helps manage and conserve the wildlife and habitats of the Wyre Forest and provides opportunities for the local community to learn and engage with the natural environment and heritage crafts.

The Wildlife Tracking course is part of our Ruskin Club nature and heritage crafts programme. Workshops are held in Ruskin Land, in the heart of the Wyre Forest, and are led by the Wyre Community Land Trust’s craft tutors. During this workshop, join expert wildlife tracker, Tracker Al to learn how to be a nature detective, identifying clues that wildlife leave around the Wyre Forest. This workshop will teach you new skills as well as offering you a different way to engage with the natural world.

The Ruskin Club is inspired by John Ruskin (1819-1900), the Victorian artist and social critic, who’s vision for Ruskin Land was for it to be ‘beautiful, peaceful and fruitful’. Ruskin wanted everyone to see and enjoy the unspoiled, inspirational beautify of the world, both in nature and in art. He argued that work should be creative and so he influenced the revival of rural industries and handicrafts.
