East Lothian Countryside rangers have been actively supporting the development of Forest school in East Lothian.
A number of rangers have trained as forest school leaders and they play a key role in supporting school based staff in using woodland environments as a learning & development space in a way that is safe and limits the impact on the environment.
Leigh Shearer took the lead in organising a gathering of staff who have trained or are training in forest school approaches. The idea of the gathering was to provide an opportunity for mutual support, learning and networking. The afternoon was a great success and the sun even shined.
