Forest Schools for All is a bold new education project for Sylva Foundation, in partnership with the Forest School Association, and The Ernest Cook Trust, which is also the main funder of the project. The three leading environmental education organisations have come together with the ultimate aim of increasing and sustaining access to Forest Schools for all children in England.
We are pleased to announce the launch of myForest for education: the UK’s first ever woodland management planning tool specifically designed for education. Funded by the Patsy Wood Trust, myForest for education has been developed as part of the recently launched myForest Version 3.0.
We had lively and informative debates about management issues such as tree pests and diseases, woodland habitat enhancement, developing areas for children’s play and exploration and wood production. Jen Hurst signposted the trainees to the wealth of organisations and information that exist in the forestry sector for further support and information on woodland management.
