Trees are simply astonishing, and there’s much more to them than meets the eye. Join naturalist Dan Puplett for a deep dive into their world. Discover the fascinating role they play in the lives of wildlife and the wider ecosystem, from birds to beetles and ferns to fungi. You will learn to identify a range of native trees and we will visit woodland conservation and rewilding projects. We will also look at the age-old relationship between trees and humans. You’ll even learn some wild food foraging, tree folklore and more!
