Our Stronghold for Nature recognises the national importance of the Forest of Dean for wildlife, and will provide fantastic opportunities for us all to learn about the plants and animals that make the Forest their home, as well as opportunities to help maintain and improve the forest’s habitats: waterways, ponds, mires, heathland and woodlands.
Through eleven projects we aim to safeguard our natural Forest and help nature evolve with our changing climate. We want to provide the skills, knowledge and enthusiasm to continue to maintain habitats and monitor the impact of changes on target species through and beyond the life of the funded programme.
You might be surprised what you find!
From creating habitats for our wildlife or improving our waterways, to recording oral histories or finding old photos, there’s always something going on to get involved in!
