Bushcraft canoe day

Canoeing and Bushcraft go together like tea and cake! A day  of foraging and learning Bushcraft skills on the River Dart in Devon. The estuary section of the river is wild, unspoiled, and teeming with wildlife. Learn how to identify edible plants, track animals, light a fire without matches or a lighter, make a rope from stinging nettles, eat a raw jellyfish (just joking)...

The canoeing is excellent too!
