Your Chester and North Wales Education Officer

Dan Bean

Dan is a qualified teacher, forest school leader and experienced outdoor educator.

He says “I believe passionately that children should all be given opportunities to learn and enjoy time in the outdoors. This in turn will allow them to cherish it through better understanding, not only of our wonderful environment but also of themselves and each other.”

Dan has worked in primary schools, secondary schools, further and higher education settings, pupil referral units and outdoor centres designing and delivering programmes for outdoor learning.

“Our woodland is an outstanding classroom, habitat, playground and a source of wonderful resources upon which we so heavily rely.”

Dan is at his happiest when spending time in the woods learning and sharing.
