Who we are
We are a charity and a membership organisation with a big mission to inspire people about Epping Forest, and to conserve and protect its irreplaceable biodiversity, culture and heritage now and for generations to come. We operate across the whole of Epping Forest, covering 6,000 acres stretching from Manor Park in East London to Epping in Essex.
Epping Forest is for everyone to love. Our work is to stand up for this wonderful ancient Forest and inspire everyone to do the same. We have regular guided walk programmes to help you getting to know Epping Forest, and we operate the Epping Forest Visitor Centre at High Beach on behalf of City of London Corporation (the Conservators). We also help to increase the biodiversity in the Forest through hands-on conservation work, campaigns to raise awareness of the Forest and advocate at planning enquiries to ensure it does not suffer direct damage from more development, traffic, or pollution.

We undertake practical habitat management tasks in Epping Forest, and welcome individuals, groups, and organisations from all walks of life to join us. Together, let’s help improve the biodiversity of the Forest.
We advocate on behalf of the Forest and engage with the public, work with partners and stakeholders in relation to public policy concerning the Forest, including local planning, and sustainable transport.
