Care for the Forest

Find out how you can play your part in keeping the New Forest special when you visit.

Caring for the Forest

We want visitors to the New Forest National Park to enjoy and benefit from its beautiful landscapes and wildlife, and they bring a much-valued contribution to the local economy. It’s great when people understand the Forest well enough to ensure they don’t inadvertently cause problems for local people and their animals or perhaps disturb rare nesting birds. Follow the links to learn how you can help care for the Forest next time you visit.
