Ruislip Woods is one of the oldest woodlands in the UK. It was important the interpretation design supported green values. The team drew on the principles of the circular economy and incorporated elements of the former exhibit, such as display cases and a large local meadow mural, all of which were repurposed. In addition, materials included printed soft-ply timbers, handmade hurdles, and hardwearing laminate worktops.
Features included seasonal spinners, interactive maps, sound stories, a craft corner and a tracing table.

Beth is great at what she does, I have learnt a lot from her along the way.—Sue Belej, WWT Slimbridge Wetland Centre
