Get in touch if you can help to make this vision a reality.

We aim to:

  • encourage and support the establishment of a funded Nature Recovery Network in the northern part of Rockingham Forest;

  • work with partner organisations and landowners to connect the core remaining forested areas with enriched bio-diverse landscapes;

  • connect local communities to the forest's natural and cultural heritage, raising its profile as a nationally significant forested landscape.

In 2018 we set out this vision for Rockingham Forest.
