Rediscovering the Lost Words

In October 2017 Pembrokeshire-based artist Jackie Morris and Robert Macfarlane published The Lost Words, a celebration of some of the nature words that are slipping out the language of children.  The importance of the book has been recognised through multiple awards and by teachers and readers of all ages.

Following a successful fund-raising campaign to put The Lost Words into every school in Scotland, similar initiatives are appearing all over the country.

The Friends of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park are seeking donations to get the book into all 70 schools in Pembrokeshire.  We are working with #AcornIsToWood, the campaign covering the whole of Wales.

Click on the book cover to read more about this wonderful book.

To donate to our appeal for Pembrokeshire, go to our Donations page. Please type Lost Words into the reason for donation – all money raised with this tag will go towards copies of the book.
