The Woods for Learning motto is "Take life back to nature, explore, discover, play, learn, live". 

Gary Marlow (the founder of Woods for Learning) believes that every participant in a Woods for Learning session benefits from the opportunity to explore, discover, play, learn and go back to nature in a woodland environment.
