Welcome to North East OWL Group
The North East OWL Scotland cluster group was initiated in 1997. It formed a Constitution in 2004 and in 2007 the group formulated a Partnership Agreement for its members to work together to increase the understanding and appreciation of the environmental, social, and economic potential of trees, woodlands and forests (key themes within the Scottish Forestry Strategy). The group meets quarterly in Aberdeen City and Shire and is made up of interested individuals from the educational sector, providers of outdoor learning e.g. NESOLG, Freelance Educators, Gardening4Kids, representatives from Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Councils, Scottish Forestry, National Trust for Scotland and Glen Tanar Ranger Service.

The aims of OWL North East Scotland Cluster Group (OWLNEG) is to increase awareness of and opportunity for woodland education in NE Scotland, and to support existing providers of outdoor learning in woodland environments (coinciding with the FC Woods for Learning strategy).
OWLNEG supports schools and communities delivering outdoor learning (such as Forest School, John Muir Award, Eco-schools, Active Schools etc.) in the Aberdeen city and Aberdeenshire areas.
