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.
Teachers can download our free lesson plans and information on taking classes to the woods.
We also provide a variety of downloadable activities including seasonal themes that can be done in any forest, so print one off and try it at a forest near where you live.
