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

Family Backpack

Families learning to orienteer.Schoolchildren love our mapstick walks.  Now families can also enjoy a fun hands-on learning walk in the Pinetum.  Simply pay £3.00 per sack, leave your keys as a deposit and be back before the office closes.  Ask for the red bag - which contains a picture guide book, binoculars, a magnifying glass and a bark rubbing kit. 

Come back another time to try the extra science acticvites in the green bag or the extra maths activities in the blue bag.

This project is now featured on the BGEN (Botanic Gardens Education Network) website as an example of inspiring plant-based learning.



England's Woods and Forests are cared for by Forest Enterprise England, an agency of the Forestry Commission.
