About the Workshops
We pass trees every day, yet we don’t take the time to learn their names.
If you want to learn how to name native tree species at a glance, learn in a creative and engaging way, and meet like minded nature lovers. Then this could be the perfect morning meet up for you.
Learning tree identification in winter makes it a great deal easier in the summer. We will learn the defining features of 3 common native tree species through walking with the trees, touching them and looking closely at their detail. Your workshop facilitator, Matt Witt of ToTheTrees.co.uk, aims to provide enough knowledge for you to start idetifying the trees you see every day.
We will meet at St John’s Church on Glastonbury High St and walk to a nearby park, where there exists a beautiful avenue of trees. We will meet the trees, learn how to identify them, then put our knowledge to the test.
Workshops will run throughout the year, in Spring, when the trees start to open their buds, into Summer, when the trees reach full foliage, then into Winter as they start to lose their leaves once more.
Feb: Winter Tree ID
March – May: Spring Tree ID
June – Aug: Summer Tree ID
Sept – Nov: Summer Tree ID
NOTE: Your first workshop will cover three native tree species, the second workshop you attend will recap on the first, then teach you how to learn the features of 3 more trees. If you decide to take a third workshop, we will cover what you learned in the first two, and for the adventurous, we’ll cover 3 more trees.
It will be informative, sociable, educational, and fun!
£10 pp – Kids <16, accompanied by an adult, can join for free.
