We want everyone to experience all the benefits of outdoor education and play no matter what your age!
In response to COVID-19 we introduced ‘Forest Academy’ for families to take part in nature themed activities at home, in their garden or in a nearby park or woodland.
Forest academy includes play, art, games, wildlife identification, den building and nature therapy and is a great way for families and friends to bond and enjoy the great outdoors.
Thanks to funding from The National Lottery Community Fund and Grow Wild we were able to revamp a disused basketball court and transform it into a thriving nature hub for families, schools and groups to use.
The nature hub consists of an outdoor classroom, hedgerow maze, playground games, pond, raised beds, recycled boat planters, treasure hunt and storytelling area. The nature hub will be central to our Forest Academy and provides a safe, secure environment for everyone.
We have expanded our environmental education programme so that families, older people, scouts and youth groups can take part in fun outdoor learning activities. Forest Academy allows participants to explore habitats, get up close to wildlife and experience the benefits of being in the great outdoors.
