Northern Ireland as 25th LEAF country

We are delighted to announce that Northern Ireland Forest School Association (NIFSA) will become affiliate member of Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) and will run Learning about Forests (LEAF) programme in Northern Ireland.

LEAF now is present in 25 countries around the world!

NIFSA was set up as an independent charity organization in 2008. Since that NIFSA has worked with over 7.500 children and trained over 20 Forest School Leaders to a Level 3 standard. NIFSA has developed its own Forest School qualifications specially adapted for Northern Ireland. Forest Schools are an exciting and inspirational experience for children. They encourage them to work as a part of a team, explore all senses, develop communication skills and much more.

Welcome to the LEAF network!
