Do you want to learn more about tree species and the wildlife that calls them home?

Play detective and learn tips and tricks to identify native trees up close or from a distance. On a family-friendly guided walk, we'll explore the woodlands and learn to recognise a dozen common tree species from leaves, bark and other clues.

This short walk of a mile or so is ideal for people of any age interested in trees, wildlife and nature.

This is a free event but booking in advance via Eventbrite is essential.
