Over the past year the project has engaged with over 2,580 people which has involved organising and facilitating 109 events. Some of the highlights include the Magical Woodland Walks which were funded by the Heritage Lottery. We also have run Owl Magic, Woodfest and a Mini Zoo which have often been oversubscribed.
