What better way to rekindle passion for the outdoors, than to venture and set up a slackline? You protect the trees you choose, get to enjoy a tranquil setting, all whilst getting healthy exercise! Perfect!
Fiona Reynolds, Director-General of the National Trust, said: “Getting outdoors and closer to nature has all sorts of benefits for our children. It keeps them fit, they can learn about the world around them and most of all its fun.”
Slacklining is fun and playful and teaches you a lot about the natural environment, especially trees. With more children able to recite logos and brand names than tree types and leaf varieties, don’t you think it’s time you took them out to slackline instead?
You can follow the progress of this Natural Trust campaign via the Outdoor Nation twitter feeds.
