Young Foresters

First Saturday of every month from 10.30am until 12.30pm.

May sees the launch of our new volunteering and bushcraft club for young people aged 12-18. Our Young Foresters will have many adventures in the Forest as well as taking part in a number of forestry and conversation tasks. The young people who take part will benefit from spending time outdoors: improve their physical and mental health, forge new friendships and gain valuable work experience.

Mini Foresters

Our regular club for families with children aged 4-11. Every month sees a new adventure for the mini foresters as they learn about wildlife, try a bit of bushcraft, get creative with craft activities and learn how to help the wildlife in the forest.
