Sponsor A Plank


Our spectacular new Bear Wood exhibit is our biggest and most ambitious project to date - and you can be a part of Wild Place Project's historic achievement by sponsoring a plank on our winding tree top walkway! 


Sponsoring a plank is the perfect gift for any sentiment, whether it is to mark a special event, to celebrate an individual or group, in memory of a loved one or the celebration of a new birth or anniversary.


Bear Wood

Bear Wood tells the story of our British woodland from 8000 BC to present day. Discover four incredible ‘extinct’, British species – bears, wolves, lynxes and wolverines – and unlock the countless secrets of our woods today.

Start your journey by entering a time chamber, where we rewind the clock back to 8000 BC when Britain was densely covered with woodland. You then emerge among the trees, ready to go on a time-hopping, wildlife-spotting adventure.
