Woodland Experiences with Make it Wild

Woodland Experiences with Make it Wild will take place  at Bank Woods, Summerbridge or Sylvan Woodland Nature Reserve, near Kirk Hammerton.

Make it Wild was started 12 years as a family project by the Neave family – Helen, Christopher and their three children. Becoming more aware of the negative impact humans were having on the planet the family wanted to create more wild spaces to encourage biodiversity and allow nature to flourish.

“We have started this project to encourage a greater knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of the natural world. We want people to share in the beauty of the wild spaces we’re creating.”


Make it Wild’s mission statement is

“It’s not our aim to protect nature, it’s our purpose.”
