Making the most of your woods
It's mid-autumn and with many families on half term breaks, there is no shortage of places to go and things to do.
Here are just a few ideas.
Find places to go near you
Our two biggest woodland organisations may well have woodlands closer than you think.:
There are also plenty of woodlands to explore in our wildlife reserves. You can find where the Wildlife Trusts’ 2,256 nature reserves are on their map.
BBC Breathing Places has a wealth of activities from over 1000 organisations around the UK.
On a local level, there are literally hundreds of local community woodlands projects, which you can get involved in.

But before you go...
Our broadleaf forests are an adventure but do you know your sycamore samaras from your ash achenes, your chestnuts from your conkers?
And there's still plenty of time to tick off a few more from our 20 Things to do in Autumn challenge.
For the kids
And indeed the adults too, Breathing Places has a host of downloadable games you can play while out and about.
The Woodland Trust also have hundreds of activity guides.
