Celebrate 100 years of forestry
Forestry Commission celebrates 100 years of forestry. There are lots of projects to get involved in and three are particularly of interest to outdoor practitioners and schools:
Tributes to Trees - During our centenary year, we invited people to send us letters, poems, stories and memories celebrating these trees. Take a moment to enjoy these by browsing our online gallery or download the teaching plan to see how we can use nature as inspiration.
Google Expeditions - A virtual tour of the forest from the classroom or home. Our tours on Google Expeditions will allow young adventurers to explore the forest and forestry careers using virtual reality – transporting them to different settings from the classroom.
