Meet the New Forest National Park Rangers and get set for adventure! As the heartbeat of the New Forest National Park, the rangers are at the epicentre of everything that happens in the New Forest and its surrounding areas. Be inspired by the work they do and the tales they have to tell of life as a ranger…
Throughout the summer season, our 10 New Forest campsites are delighted to welcome the rangers for free activities for kids. Designed to entertain and teach about the New Forest, children can get involved in bug hunting expeditions, scavenger hunts and a host of fun-filled games!
What do the rangers do?
The New Forest National Park Rangers get involved in all kinds of activities and events, including:
The New Forest rangers work to keep information for tourists up to date, and help to distribute National Park publications.
You will find them at many local events in their distinctive National Park Explorer mobile unit, which is well worth a visit. Watch out for the rangers at New Forest local fairs and shows, farmers’ markets, food festivals and events and activities organised by the Forestry Commission and the New Forest Centre, throughout the year.
The Explorer mobile is packed with interesting items, including the National Park treasure chest and astounding artefacts like antlers, deer skins and Roman pottery.
For information about forest ranger campsite visits, talk to our onsite staff at reception. For details of ranger led events happening in the New Forest, call the National Park Authority on 01590 646600 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
