Thursday 4th April 2019 10am to 4:30pm

‘I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees.’
Henry David Thoreau
Bringing together teachers, forest school practitioners, outdoor learning providers, woodland owners or anyone interested in Britain’s forest and woodlands in the beautiful National Forest, this event will provide you with information, advice and valuable networks to improve your knowledge and practice.
Inspire and Inform
The day’s practical workshops and keynote speakers will inspire, and expand delegates’ knowledge and understanding of the ecology and management of the UK’s forests and woodlands.
In the diverse woodlands of Rosliston Forestry Centre, take part in three workshops, led by forestry and education experts:
- From tree to wood product! Information, resources and activities on how we use British trees
- Caring for our trees! Identification skills and tree health awareness to understand and protect our woodlands
- Creating Forests for Learning! Creating new woodland sites for schools and managing existing woodland sites for schools
Tree Tools for schools
Woodland Trust will be providing an overview of their new ‘Tree Tools for Schools’ resource: a free online resource that has activities linked to the primary curriculum and supports many of the topics covered in this CPD event.
There will be opportunities for networking with other forest educators and browsing the forest education resources on display.
£75 attendance at the CPD event (including lunch and refreshments) or £90 & £2 p&p for attendance at the event (including lunch and refreshments) and a copy of the Primary Forest & Woodland Teaching Resource pack
