Forest School is recognised nationally as an innovative way of working outdoors with children and young adults. A typical Forest School programme is run outdoors, and aims to enthuse and utilise the interests of the participants to engage them. Some programmes can have a strong practical skills element and so contribute to the conservation management of our urban woodlands.

Ecological and Hertiage Skills

We regularly run guided walks and short courses on our many nature reserves.  Walks are led by experts and give you the chance to get up close to nature.  Visit our What's On page for current opportunities.
