Working Woodlands Project

The Working Woodlands project aims to protect, enhance and promote the woodlands of the Greensand Ridge for their biodiversity, heritage and recreational value, their role in the landscape, as providers of ecosystem services, and as part of the rural economy.

Main objectives of the project are to:

  • better understand our local woodlands, their importance, the challenges they face and possible solutions
  • raise awareness of the importance of our local woodlands and their management and encourage people to visit and enjoy them responsibly
  • promote the beneficial and sustainable management of our local woodlands
  • continue to develop the Working Woodlands Centre as a base for training, education and visiting Maulden Wood, and as a focus for woodland initiatives on the Greensand Ridge

A walk in the woods with a craft activity

As the days shorten come for a walk to discover how the woodland prepares for the winter and find out what creatures are hiding in the shadows as we walk in Maulden Wood and search for and collect some beautiful autumn colours and materials. 

Back at the Working Woodlands Centre we’ll be creating some monster masks with your collected materials and autumn leaves.
