Louise Ambrose


I have always loved playing in nature, and originally trained as an ecologist. Early in my career I realised that it was more fun to have other people to play with outside and ended up working in the outdoor learning industry for the last 15 years. Since 2008 I have mainly worked as a freelance Forest School trainer and have coordinated the Forest School strategy for Norfolk. However in previous incarnations I’ve been a residential field studies instructor, Environmental Education officer on nature reserves, Bushcraft instructor and primary school teacher.

Louise trades as Birchwood Learning an independent provider of Nature based training and is a member of The Outrageous Nature Company.
