Feedback from last year’s roadshow

“Our students had a very enjoyable day but furthermore had a good insight into the world of forestry and job opportunities within the sector. A really worthwhile day!”

“I think the the greatest impact on the students was realising that there are actual careers that they can aspire to that are directly linked to the Land based course.”

Tickets are free but are limited to 50 per school or organisation as we are anticipating high demand for this event.
