Robin Hood Festival Weekend Three

It’s 70 years since Sherwood was declared a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Today, it is a vital remnant of the UK’s last ancient woodlands.

Here you will find a woodland which has one of Europe’s largest assemblages of Ancient Oak Trees.

Hundreds of species depend on every ancient tree here and this weekend we’ll be celebrating our special species.

There will be wildlife-focused activities and displays, with a range of organisations here to talk about the work they do to protect the amazing species of the British Isles.

We’re delighted that joining us for the weekend will be:

The Woodland Trust
Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust
Nottinghamshire Beekeepers Association
Nottinghamshire Bat Group
Bingham Linear Park
Nottinghamshire Amphibian & Reptile Group
The Birklands Ringing Group
Nottingham Trent University
University of Nottingham
Bestwood Wildlife Group
The Sherwood Forest Trust
Butterfly Conservation

Activities include:

Bird walks, bat walks and tree walks, bug hunts, pond dipping and willow weaving.

Oh, and archery and axe-throwing (which will be happening every day this summer).
