We’re thrilled to welcome The Woodland Trust as a new associate partner to the project, further strengthening our expertise and ability to offer the greatest care to this wonderful forest.
It’s an exciting collaboration, with the Woodland Trust tasked with helping produce the most effective messaging around the forest’s iconic oaks and the woodland in general within some of the interpretation elements of the new centre.
This will be designed to help visitors understand the huge importance of the woodland, as well as finding fun ways of connecting people to the wonderful nature of the forest.
They’ll join partners in looking at innovative ways to deliver the messaging, to both inspire and excite everyone who comes to this magical place, with a special focus on the Major Oak – because, well, this tree absolutely deserves it!
The partnership will also include some collaboration on the management planning of the National Nature Reserve, and exploring the best ways to look after the forest’s unique cohort of ancient oaks.
Going forward, it’s hoped the Trust will continue to work with the RSPB and other partners on the wider Sherwood landscape, together with a wide variety of other expert organisations.
