As a thank you for being a Friend of the Forest, you receive:

  • Free parking at the Forest Centre & Millennium Country Park (excluding some events such as the Forest Family Fun Day)
  • Free access to the Wetlands Nature Reserve for you and one guest.
  • A Tree Dedication in the Forest.

Volunteers make up a huge part of our work force – if you can spare some time, or want to be a part of our growing team, then we could use your help both with practical work and with raising awareness in the community, and at events.

If you’re interested in fundraising for us, by doing something you love or have always wanted to try (think skydiving or a marathon) then we can provide all of the materials you need, from the ideas to online sponsorship – we make it easy for you to share your event on social media or via email, to get your friends involved.
