We run a number of projects that help people: learn about the area; explore it; or take action to care of it. All the projects help achieve the objectives of the High Weald AONB Management Plan.

Funding comes from a range of sources: including the Heritage Lottery Fund, Natural England, Environment Agency, Forestry Commission and Woodland Trust as well as local authorities.
