The Woods are open to the public. Dunbar Community Woodland Group manages the woods on behalf of the community. We aim to:
- Manage Lochend Woods as a community resource.
- Maximise potential for educational and recreational use.
- To value and nurture wildlife.
- To steward the environment, and maintain pathways and waterways
- Encourage all who use the woods to treat them with respect, to clear litter and to discourage damage to the trees and wildlife habitats
- Encourage group membership and conservation volunteering
