We are a registered charity (no. 269546) established in 1975 devoted to countryside and environmental education in all its varied forms. We have grown over the years in stature and
scope to become an organisation running a residential centre, the Out of Town Centre, a
field studies centre, the inspirational Treehouse Study Centre, a farm and educational garden
and a broad community programme. Our particular emphasis is on children and those at a disadvantage within our society.
We aim to be at the forefront of countryside education at this time of renewed interest and
controversy. Our overall aim is to promote and operate courses, activities and facilities which
enable children and adults to learn about, understand and care for the countryside drawing
on the diverse resources of the New Forest and the Beaulieu Estate.
