Guidance for Landowners

Created by OWL Scotland | Published 11.02.20

As a woodland owner, you can open up your woods for learning. This guidance provides summary information on the use of woodland for outdoor and woodland learning. This includes what makes a good woodland site for learning, and what activities may take place. Legal and practical aspects are considered, including liability and insurance, risk assessment, safety, access and responsibilities, and further links to organisations, resources and funding are included. Local OWL groups and Forest School practitioners may find this useful for reference and to share with their local site manager/ owner.
