Forests for All: A Celebration of Scotland’s Forests at Glen Tanar Visitor Centre - 10.30am - 3.30pm

Event date: 29/09/2019

From forest clearings to cityscapes, campfires to biomass, bushcraft to nanotechnology, Scotland’s forests have been a treasure trove of resources for thousands of years and a place to find refuge and wellbeing. Join us to discover how we have lived in, benefitted from and managed Scotland’s forests from earliest times to the present-day. Find out how our forests today are increasingly important - both for us and for the wildlife they support. An event for all ages! • Family-friendly woodland activities (e.g. take our den challenge in the woodland; hunt for forest mini-beasties, cook a marshmallow on a campfire; PLUS pre-school fun for wee siblings! • Demonstration of forestry (woodland establishment, timber harvesting) • Green woodworking demonstrations • Discover the wider benefits of trees: from wildlife habitats to flood control and carbon capture • Guided walks through Glen Tanar’s pine woods – Scotland’s third largest area of old native forest.
