On Sunday 11 September, Westonbirt, The National Arboretum will join Forestry Commission sites across the country for a nationwide Forest Discovery Day.
From 10.30am - 4pm, families visiting Westonbirt can take part in a range of free activities to celebrate the International Year of Forests.
Visitors can experience willow crafts, meet our forest family on a trail up to the new Ted's Fright play area in Silk Wood and find out about the different trees in our woodlands with a new family fun booklet.
To show just how much you love forests, Westonbirt will also be asking visitors to hug their favourite tree and post pictures to the Forestry Commission England facebook page.
Visit the green family events gazebo by the picnic area on the day to find out more.
Visitors can take part in a national draw to win one of 1,000 free parking vouchers for the day online at www.forestry.gov.uk/moreinfo.
