Outdoor and Woodland Learning (OWL) Scotland is dedicated to increasing the use of Scotland's outdoor environments for learning.

Learning outdoors, in playgrounds, towns, cities, parks or our stunning natural environments. It actively engages young people, connecting their learning to the world around them.

OWL Scotland is supported by Scottish Forestry and evolved out of the Forest Education Initiative which ran for over 20 years.

The OWL Scotland website provides dedicated learning resources and information on:

  • grants
  • advice
  • training
  • networking opportunities
  • local groups
