About the Event
Most of us know some tree names and can identify some leaf shapes. But there is so much more to identifying trees and understanding why they're the shape they are. We'll look at different ways to identify trees from their bark, buds, leaves and even their profile. We'll also explore the many ways humans have interacted with and used trees and woodland, looking at food, materials and medicines. During the day we'll make a collection of field notes and compile them into a notebook to record what you've learned.
Workshop programme You'll arrive onsite by 10am, where the workshop will start from there. The day finishes by 4pm.
