Learn the ancient art of tree identification with CambridgePPF

Saturday 13 December: 12.30pm – 4.30pm

Have you ever struggled to spot a Spruce or overlooked an Oak? Maybe you can’t tell the difference between conkers and roast chestnuts?

Having basic tree identification skills has many practical benefits beyond tree spotting in your local forest. Trees form the base of the food chain and many species depend on them.  Knowing how to identify trees will help you spot wildlife in the countryside and will also enable you to encourage more wildlife into your gardens.

Join local charity CambridgePPF at Wandlebury on Saturday 13 December from 12.30pm for this workshop and acquire the basic skills for tree identification using bark, buds, leaves, shape and form, then go on a tree trail to put those skills to use.
