The New Forest Trust

The New Forest Trust

The New Forest Trust- has developed Love the Forest fundraising. Working with businesses across the New Forest to raise funds for conservation and education projects.

This registered New Forest charity trust helps to care for the spectacular landscape, wildlife and traditions of the New Forest.

The New Forest is an award winning world capital for wildlife with many rare species and habitats. For some plants, birds and animals, it’s their last refuge in the UK.

The New Forest Trust has been created to help the ancient landscape of the New Forest and culture as they are under threat. The threats include the climate and natural emergencies, the impact of increasing visitor numbers and redevelopment of the landscape.

Supporting New Forest heritage

The New Forest Trust awarded a grant to the New Forest Heritage Centre. The centre is a museum, gallery and reference library based in Lyndhurst.

This village attracts more than 200,000 visitors a year. A heritage centre was key to providing a vital role to promote conservation. Educating visitors and local residents alike.
