A taste of the Wild Outdoors

Wednesday, 12 July 2017


On Monday 3rd July we held our first Forest Schools taster event, hosted by our recognised centre, Staffordshire Wildlife Trust.

A number of attendees booked on to this free event to learn about the benefits of becoming a Forest School Leader for their educational establishment. We started with a classroom talk from Duncan and Shaun from the Trust where they explained the history of Forest Schools. The group then moved outside to participate in typical practical activities involved in a Forest School programme. These included how to make a fire, knife work and tool safety and creating artwork using only the nature they could find.
