No worries at walkies time please

We are very sad to have received reports of sheep worrying in and around the Heart of England Forest in recent weeks. We love the fact that people enjoy using our Forest, and we welcome dogs and their responsible owners.

Destination volunteer

“Whether planting new saplings, or working with young established trees, it’s immensely fulfilling being a volunteer with the Heart of England Forest. You get to meet lots of interesting people, and the general working banter and chat with other volunteers makes for a wonderfully satisfying day.”

Hurrah for the humble hawthorn

In a new series, we are highlighting some of the fascinating native species that grow across the Heart of England Forest and looking at each in a little more detail. First up is the unassuming hawthorn, perhaps one of the most under-appreciated members of the Forest family.

Help to ease winter woes for wildlife

Sitting by a roaring fire with hot cup of tea while winds rage and rain lashes down outside can leave one feeling cosy and snug, but it’s easy to forget that in the open air the local wildlife is engaged in a constant battle just to survive as the seasonal temperatures hit glacial lows.

All wrapped up for Christmas

It is well known that wildlife has an extraordinary ability to survive some of the harshest of conditions, but not all species are prepared to battle the winter elements. When the going gets tough, the tough sometimes go to sleep!
