Woodland Management

We have a three year management plan to improve the area for birds and butterflies. We use managed woodland materials to make fire, music art and build dens, soil surveys.

Flora and Fauna Identification

Session by session we build the children’s knowledge of different flora and fauna species.

Getting to know Wood

Over time attendees can become entranced by the multiple properties and uses of wood. Grading twigs for fire lighting pictured below, sculpture for review, logs for sitting and playing on. Going deeper into the quality of wood, creative children have commented on the colours of the grain and layers of bark.

 

We develop children intellectually using the Forest School Star paradigm.
