Healthy environment

One of the National Park’s special qualities is its healthy environment; from precious wetlands to local produce.

A healthy environment

The National Park boasts clean air and a sense of wildness that is hard to find in the busy south of England. There are also many miles of crystal clear streams, rivers and ponds that provide excellent habitat for hundreds of species. This special environment inspires local food, drink and crafts of the highest quality, often badged under the New Forest Marque produce scheme.
