New Forest Ambassador scheme

Become a New Forest Ambassador

COVID-19 UPDATE: New Forest Ambassadors should always follow the latest Government Covid-19 restrictions and guidance.

Please see the Covid-19 Response Spring 2021 summary  to see the roadmap of lockdown restrictions lifting. 

Many people enjoy living in or close to the New Forest National Park and many more visit regularly from further afield. The area’s rich culture and history, open heathland, woods, beautiful coast and special wildlife are much-loved by us all – so much so that many are keen to help in practical ways.

Here we’ve started a list of things people can do, especially as we all recover from the impacts of Covid-19. Alongside welcoming people back to the New Forest we want to help them understand and respect it. We know that many local people are already picking up litter and monitoring issues as they happen. We hope the information and resources we are providing will encourage this fresh and positive attitude – and help create a new and growing team of New Forest Ambassadors.

The New Forest Ambassador Scheme has been created by us in partnership with local parish councils and New Forest District Council.

What you can do

Litter picking – we have put together more free litter picking kits, each including a picking guide, bags, a hi-vis jacket and a litter picker. These will be available from 29 March 2021.

Report a problem – we’ve provided improved instructions so that the right organisations are informed.

Help record verge and gateway parking – this will help Forest organisations review the Forest’s long-term parking needs.

Welcome responsible Forest users – we have provided downloadable and printed resources including the New Forest Code so that parish councils, local businesses, visitor attractions and accommodation providers can help share relevant messages.

Thank you for helping us protect the beautiful New Forest.
