Habitat Conservation

Join us for an evening getting hands on in the Forest. Spend time in the natural environment, learn new skills, keep fit, and make new friends, with a social sit down and a campfire at the end of each session.

Take part in activities focused on conservation and wildlife protection, contributing to the preservation and enhancement of our natural environment.

These sessions will run every Wednesday evening throughout July and August 2024. Ideal if you’d like to support the Forest but are unable to give your time during the day or at weekends.
