Everyone should be able to access the natural world which is why we manage a community woodland and provide activities and resources to help people do just that.

We hold weekly sessions on Tuesdays and Saturdays throughout the year (weather permitting!). 

Our Tuesday Twigglets sessions 12.30pm - 2.30pm are designed especially for children under 4 years old.  They are very popular, but there's always room for more.  Outdoor fun includes pond dipping, den building and campfire cooking all under the supervision of Jane, our forest schools specialist and her team. Twigglets is generously funded by a Small Steps Big Changes Ideas Fund grant and as such is free to all.    

Saturday sessions 11am - 3pm are for children aged 5 - 13 years old.  Adventurous play where children are encouraged to be actively involved in woodland crafts, campfire cooking and exploring the natural world through play.  Opportunities for everyone to get hands on with woodland conservation and make a real contribution to the upkeep of Barker's Wood.
