Finding joy in the outdoors

Today’s children are tomorrow’s Forest guardians. We want to develop lasting relationships with the families and young people in our communities, helping them to grow up loving the Forest and wanting to take care of it.

Some children and families rarely visit the natural environment, so we also hope to reach out to new audiences and help children develop the habit of visiting natural spaces regularly to improve their wellbeing and quality of life.
