Woodland Workshops

Woodland Workshops

Thanks to support from players of People's Postcode Lottery, Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is again this year able to deliver a county-wide programme of Forest Schools inspired Woodland Workshops.

The Trust wil be delivering specially tailored programmes of workshops for schools and community groups and running family friendly sessions at weekends and in school holidays at its two flagship nature reserves.

Workshops will focus on teaching a range of craft and survival skills in safe, inspirational outdoor spaces.


The Woodland Workshops organised by Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust form part of a programme of activity supported by £2.4million in funding in 2017 that The Wildlife Trusts have been fortunate to receive from players of People's Postcode lottery to support the work across England, Scotland and Wales.

People’s Postcode Lottery is a charity lottery that emphasises supporting good causes in the heart of players’ communities, fitting perfectly with The Wildlife Trusts’ emphasis on protecting wildlife where our members live.

For more information about the support provided to The Wildlife Trusts by players of People's Postcode Lottery click here. Stephanie Hilborne, CEO of The Wildlife Trusts, can also be seen in this short video describing the benefits of the scheme. Nick Baker also supports the project and can be seen in this short video here.
