What’s that Tree? Spring

Woodlands come alive in spring and are rich and diverse habitats for wildlife. On our Woodlands in spring course you will find out about the history and management of ancient woodland and look at some of the species, including carpets of Hampshire’s famous bluebells, associated with this special habitat.

In relaxed and interesting morning of discussions, observations and practising wildlife identification using FSC guides you will learn basic skills in:

  • Tree identification
  • Wildflower/ancient woodland indicator identification
  • Wildlife identification

You will also have an introduction to woodland management and woodland ecology overview.

At the end of the morning you will have gained knowledge to identify common species of plants and animals in woodlands and enrich your spring woodland walks.

On our Woodland in spring course you will walk approximately 3 miles on public footpaths alongside the beautiful Harewood Forest.
