Many people find that being outside in natural places, immersed in fresh air and surrounded by other living things is calming, healing and inspiring. These places renew us, nurture our spirits and can even feel magical.

Throughout the ages and around the world, the wonder of nature and outdoors has resonated with people. Many cultures have stories, legends and myths about the spirits and powers that exist in other living things and the mystical creatures in the natural world.

An artist at The Steel Yard designed 30 nature inspired creatures that they turned into cut steel sculptures.  These unique creatures can be found along land trust trails. See if you can find them?
