We're bringing the forest to you

Missing the forest?

Following the latest Government guidelines about travelling to exercise,  we are beginning to open our forests when it is safe to do so. But if you are isolating, home schooling or simply prefer to be at home during this pandemic,  we want to make sure you stay close to the forest.

We've created ideas and information to help you stay connected to the woodlands, at home. Whether you're looking for activities to entertain the children, tips to improve your wellbeing or great information about forest wildlife, we'll be sharing everything you need to get your forest fix from home.
