Welcome

Formed in 1867, the New Forest Association is one of the oldest conservation organisations in the world. It is dedicated to protecting and sustaining the traditional character of the New Forest in southern England.

At times of great change when the very existence of the Forest was in doubt, the NFA played a leading role in the fights to secure its future.

Today the NFA is the New Forest National Park Society and it continues to be an independent, campaigning charity based on its membership and volunteers.

The New Forest is a unique survival of medieval Europe. It is internationally important to nature conservation and to biological science. It has been a National Park since 2005. Help the NFA to look after it.
