School visits to Haldon Forest Park
Uncover the secrets of Haldon Forest Park with your class
Haldon Forest Park, nestled in 3,500 acres of woodland, is just 15 minutes from Exeter and is easily accessible by car or private coach. It offers fantastic learning opportunities for people of all ages and abilities, including the opportunity to become a ranger for the day with our new Ranger in a Bag activity.
A classroom with no walls
The living, breathing forest is a versatile learning space, with room to think and space to explore.
Plan sensory exploration or wildlife and habitat spotting with younger children. Older children can see how ecosystems work, undertake field studies or explore the science behind the tree lifecycle.
Learning in a forest is also a practical way to immerse your class in a range of subjects. Spark students' imagination by delivering a lesson on any topic, using the setting as inspiration.
Discover sustainable forest management in action
We grow, shape and care for forests, managing landscapes for people, wildlife and timber production.
At Haldon, you'll see what sustainable forest management is, and why it's so important, through hands-on activities.
