We are soon to launch our new website for the public forests in England. Take an early look at the beta site


Star Gazing

Children using telescopes on a star gazing evening event

Sign up for our Stargazing guide and activity sheet. Packed with fantastic activities for all the family, get your hands on this free guide to learn about constellations, navigate by the stars, play night-games and become a Forest-Star.

To receive a 1 hour CU passport stamp, write 4 sentences about your stargazing activities, including your favourite constellation and take a photo of your star shaped picture made from natural materials.

Send them to with child’s name, age and where the activity was carried out.

We understand that not all children are able‎ to complete written work; where necessary, the child may give verbal answers which are noted by a parent or teacher and sent with an accompanying comment.  Alternatively parents or teachers may wish to discuss submitting a different piece of evidence, if so please get in touch
