Information Pack

Taking part is easy! To take part in the Schools for Forests campaign, just get in touch with us to register a school or college. You can then just go ahead and raise funds, perhaps using the ideas given in this information pack. Those wishing to do more can use other information in this pack to integrate the campaign into their teaching.

Please contact us at info@circle-conservation.org when downloading materials, so that we can register your school or college to the Schools for Forests challenge. The sooner you are registered, the sooner others can support your fundraising on our Just Giving site. Once registered we will also send forest-related lesson plans.
