2024 Summer Events Programme invites you to explore Trees from a new angle!

Dumfries & Galloway Woodlands is a new initiative looking to support trees, habitats and the people that depend upon them across the region. With support from The National Lottery Heritage Fund and a whole range of partners, the Summer Programme of Events sets out to look at trees in many different ways, celebrating what we know and don’t know about our woodlands.

All events are free to attend bookable through the following links, or through our website If you have queries about the accessibility of any event, contact

McNabb Laurie, Dumfries & Galloway Woodlands Manager, said:

“The guiding aim of this programme is to provide an opportunity to look at trees and woodlands from new angles – having good fun in the process! We have 22 events in all, from viking foragers to painting with the colour of trees, this programme has something for all ages and interests!

This is only the opening salvo of activity through the summer, with other events being developed with partners from Langholm to Stranraer. Keep an eye on our social media channels as these additional events are publicised in coming weeks.

If you have any queries about any of the events, please do get in touch. Thanks again to all partners involved for being so game, and to The National Lottery Heritage Fund for their support.”
