As part of the centenary celebrations of our friends at Forestry England, we’re joining in with the big forest find throughout 2019!
From birds and butterflies, to insects and plant life on the forest floor, join a journey of discovery through forest landscapes as we celebrate Forestry England’s centenary!
The Big Forest Find is England’s largest survey of forest wildlife. The animal and plant life you record across the nation’s woods and forests will help us protect and provide homes for wildlife, now and in the future.
Whether you’re a seasoned naturalist or a family of wildlife enthusiasts, it’s easy to take part.
