Why should I join?


Spending time in woodlands has been proven to lower heart rate and blood pressure, reduce stress hormone production, boost the immune system, and improve overall feelings of wellbeing. Find out more about the benefits of woodlands for health and wellbeing on our Social Forestry for Participants page. 

How can I get involved?


During Covid-19, we've been working online to help people connect to nature and woodlands at home and in their local area (click here to find out how we can support you). We're working on getting back to the woods safely as soon as possible. Check back here and on our Facebook page for updates.
