Coronavirus update:

Thank you for visiting the Teaching Trees Appeal pages of our website. We've made an appeal to all our members to help expand and improve our Teaching Trees Programme in the April edition of the Quarterly Journal of Forestry. Since the appeal was written and sent to print, we have taken the difficult but necessary decision to suspend all Teaching Trees visits and Teacher Training until children return to school (we expect this to be in September). 

But we still need your help. When children return to school, we need to be ready. Children and their teachers will have felt the effects of the coronavirus outbreak. We are expecting our free, curriculum based, outdoor learning sessions in woodlands to be very popular, especially after what is likely to have been an extended period of staying indoors. 

We also want to be able to offer teachers and learning practioners free, downloadable learning resources so they can get their children outside and convey important forestry messages about timber, pest control and wildlife management. 

We need your help to raise £24,000 so that we can include more children in this programme. We already operate in 12 counties but with your help, we can run new sessions for disadvantaged children and the adults who teach them in Monmouthshire, Blaenau Gwent, Powys, Flintshire, Denbighshire, Conwy, Leeds, Bradford, Cheshire and the Wirral and Derbyshire.

With your help we can offer more school visits to RFS Member woodlands, more training bursaries for teachers and practitioners working in deprived neighbourhoods and extend our free, downloadable resources for schools and homeschoolers. 

Your donation will increase the numbers of children who value the role of woodlands and the people who care for them. If more children value trees and woodlands, will be in a better position to meet the challenges of growing more and resilient trees in a changing climate.

 

Thank you for your support.
