The theme for 2016 is Love Life, Love Nature!

"Love Life, Love Nature"

We need nature. Nature produces air for us to breathe, food to eat, water to drink and medicines to cure our ills. It is where we go to re-charge our batteries, relax and get away from the stresses and strains of our daily lives. Nature inspires and comforts us and we make it our playground.

This year "Love Life, Love Nature". Have fun, try something new, be energetic and adventurous!

Ideas to get you started...

Here are some great ideas from previous years' events to inspire you.....

  • Sea kayaking in Plockton - viewed marine wildlife and landscapes from the unique perspective that this fun sport offers (we wish we could have gone!)
  • A fossil hunt tour in Fife discovering giant prehistoric insect tracks - fantastic!
  • Tree safari in Peebles - learning about the magnificent heritage trees in the region - some of them centuries old. Tree-mendous!
  • Film festival in Dundee - with internationally acclaimed environmental films such as "The Cove".
  • School events - pupils planted wildflowers in school grounds and in their local communities. We love that you are learning from nature.
  • Tayside Biodiversity Festival! What an inspiration.
  • Cairngorms National Park held a three day biodiversity extravaganza of events which they called the "Big Bio Buzz". Brilliant.
  • Churches held talks about nature and faith - perfect.

We would love to hear about your ideas to help make Scotland's Nature Festival a huge success again in 2016.
