An integral part of the Alladale Wilderness Reserve vision is their HOWL (Highland Outdoor and Wilderness Learning) programme, which offers a specially designed and expert-led, environmental journey for school children across the UK.

– STUDENTS TAKING IN THE LANDSCAPE

 

During the tailored experience participants not only improve their understanding about the natural world, ecology and conservation but also learn key life skills within one of the most progressive conservation projects in the UK.

The professionally managed courses make the perfect addition to a diverse biology curriculum or stand alone as an engaging summer camp. Delivered over five days and four nights, the programme includes hiking, navigation, bushcraft and numerous other outdoor activities – ecology underpins and is integrated throughout the whole journey.

Now entering its 8th year, HOWL has engaged thousands of children across the UK.

“I have been taking students to Alladale for the last seven years. It is an experience that I believe every student should have. Being out in the wilderness and removed from technology and mobile phones gives students breathing space and allows them time to think. Watching the students beam with joy is all worth it. That’s why I keep coming back!”
