How to earn a passport stamp

Pick up a trail pack at a forest near you. To earn a one-hour stamp for your Children's University passport, send us a photo of your completed trail sheet. If you don't have the trail leaflet you can send in a drawing of five ways that trees can help us or animals that live in the forest, with a short description.
