Enjoy the changing seasons and learn more about identifying native trees this autumn.

Do you recognise native tress from the seeds, nuts and berries they produce in the autumn? Do you know your hawthorn berries from your rowan berries, your birch seeds from your beech nuts, or even your English oak acorns from your Sessile oak acorns?
Come and join Neill Talbot from Avellana Ecology who will help you identify tree species with a focus on particular features to look out for in autumn. This walk will take place in the Hicks Mead area of the Great Avon Wood site where we have been planting trees over the last two winters. Hicks Mead contains the Publow Brook, open meadow, new planting, mature hedgerows and existing woodland, so their are a wealth of trees to explore. Neill will also be looking at the autumn flora in the multiple habitats across the site.

This is the third of tree identification events taking place this year – each exploring a different season and a different part of the Great Avon Wood site.

Further details and full travel directions will be sent out when you register your place. Please be aware that there are no hardstanding paths at Great Avon Wood and we are not able to allow dogs at events except for assistance dogs.

This event is free to attend and we are very grateful to the National Lottery Heritage Fund for their support.
