Autumn Things to do do
Autumn is a stunning time of year, with the most beautiful array of colours. It’s also a wonderful time of year to connect with nature and enjoy all her splendour! And the National Trust has a lot of colour to offer!
Autumn is a lovely time of year to enjoy the colours of nature - the reds, rusts, oranges, browns, crimsons, greens - all a joyful sight. It's a time for kicking the leaves in the air, seeing if you can catch them as they fall from a tree, doing leaf art when you get home, watching the wildlife prepare for winter - and coming home to a lovely, warming cup of tea with a yummy piece of cake, or stopping off at a coffee shop for something scrumptious!
Ways to Connect with Nature
The National Trust has a number of ideas of ways you can connect with nature.
Dogs are welcome at many National Trust places, so if you've got a four legged family member, they could have some great new days out as well as you!
You could also take part in the Woodland Trust's Nature's Calendar - choose a species and behaviour you'd like to look out for, pick a spot where you'd like to record them, and then keep your eyes peeled and let the Trust know what you see. They've also got easy identification guides so that you can work out what species you're seeing! Take a look at how to identify wildlife here.
Get artistic and crafty
And in Scotland...
Now, if you're in Scotland or heading that way, the National Trust for Scotland has plenty of ideas of things you can do, whether you want to enjoy family days out, go in search of wildlife, enjoy autumn walks, or be inspired for things to do on those inevitable rainy days...
