Prospect is the fundholder for this exciting new project which is being supported by the National Heritage Lottery Fund. We are working in partnership with Edinburgh and Lothian Greenspace Trust who are going to deliver the activity sessions. During lockdown periods there has been a lot of interest in the woods with people looking for places to be outside for exercise and wellbeing. Westburn Woods is a great outdoor space and we would like more people to be able to enjoy being in a woodlands and to know more about woodland conservation. Over the year there will be opportunities to learn woodland skills and to help with physical improvements to the woods.
