Liz Edwards has been involved in Forest Schools for two decades. She became a Forest School practitioner in 2001 and went on to set up a Forest School training company, enjoying supporting many people to become Forest School leaders.
In 2007 Liz launched Muddy Faces, with the aim of creating a resource that would support and enable many different types of groups and individuals to access quality outdoor provision - a one-stop-online-shop for all the outdoor play & learning resources a Forest School leader or outdoor practitioner could need.
Prior to becoming involved in Forest school, Liz worked as an environmental educator for the Peak District National Park, and as an outdoor pursuits instructor (SpSA climbing instructor and Mountain Leader), both in the UK and abroad.
She has also had roles as a youth development worker for the Prince’s Trust, and as a mountain leader for youth development charity Raleigh International, spending 5 months in Namibia and 3 months in Chile.
