Protect your landscape

The Rusland Horizons projects are arranged around four inter-connected themes or programmes of work to revive traditional skills and to learn about, enhance and enjoy the heritage, habitats and wildlife of this quiet and very special place.

Heritage Skills

This programme provides training and experience in traditional land management skills and craft products from natural local materials. These activities link closely to the conservation work in Woodlands and Wildlife programme, giving benefits for the landscape and heritage as well as people.

Woodlands and Wildlife

The Woodlands and Wildlife programme is built around eight closely linked projects of habitat improvements and species monitoring and support.

Hidden Heritage

This programme involves the local community in exploring and understanding the cultural heritage of the area through surveys, archive research and oral history accounts. This learning is shared through the Out and About programme.

Out and About

This programme concerns improving access to the Rusland Horizons area and engaging people in learning about the natural and cultural landscape heritage and rights of way network.
