Woodland wonder

At least 50,000 people are expected to be out in Britain's woods in May during the Walk in the Woods festival organised by the Tree Council. The council is calling on its 150 member organisations to urge politicians, the media and the public to support the week's events, such as teddy bears' picnics and treasure hunts. Campaigns director Kevin Hand said: "The aim of our Walk in the Woods festival is to highlight the pleasures of visiting woods at a time of year when they are often at their most beautiful - spring flowers, birdsong and fresh leaves make them wonderful places to be." The month-long festival, which is being co-ordinated by wardens and rangers, is organised in conjunction with holiday company Center Parcs.
