Our vision is: to enable everyone, everywhere, to connect with the nation’s trees and forests so that they understand their importance and the role of the Forestry Commission in their management, and act positively to safeguard forests for the future.
- education groups (nurseries, schools, colleges etc.)
- non-education groups (guides, church groups, youth groups etc.)
- families and children
Forestry Commission rangers, based at learning centres in each of our six districts, will provide and facilitate a wide variety of learning opportunities at forests across the country.
To find out more about learning opportunities in your area, contact your local Forestry Commission learning team.
We also provide a variety of downloadable activities that can be done in any forest, so print one off and try it at a forest near where you live.
Each year Climate Week inspires individuals young and old to create a more sustainable future. To celebrate the vital role our trees and forests have to play in managing climate change, Forestry Commission England have created special Climate Week trails in a number of forests across the country:
- South - Alice Holt, Blackwater Arboretum
- North - Kielder, Whinlatter, Grizedale
- Central - Cannock Chase, Chambers Farm, Hicks Lodge (Tue 25 Feb - Tue 11 March), Sherwood Pines
- West - Wyre
- East - High Lodge, Thames Chase (Fri 28 Feb - Sun 9 March)
Unless stated otherwise, these trails will be available throughout Climate Week: Monday 3rd - Sunday 9th March. For more information on the trails get in touch with your local learning team, use the link to the relevant district above for contact details.
We have also created a Climate Week activity download for families, groups and schools to download and complete in their local woodland.
