Today, the Trust annouced an exciting new collaboration with Disney Store UK to create The Magical Wood at Heartwood Forest.
The Magical Wood will be about 50 acres of natural broadleaf woodland and meadows. Disney has invested in this project as part of its commitment to encouraging children to look after and enjoy their natural environment. Woodlands are great natural playgrounds and families are welcome to come along and see this great project come alive for themselves.
Some people have voiced concerns that the project will involve a theme park – but rest assured, as with the other 1000+ sites cared for by the Woodland Trust, The Magical Wood will be a natural environment for wildlife and the local community to enjoy. There are no plans to create a theme park.
