Botanic Garden, 1 Brookside, CB2 1JE

PLEASE NOTE: THIS EVENT WILL NOT RUN ON SATURDAY 16 MARCH DUE TO HIGH WINDS

Do you know your oaks from your ash? Take part in the tree trail around the Botanic Gardens and find out how to identify types of British trees, why tree identification is important for saving British trees and what you can do to help.

Participants will be given a tree trail map and a booklet to help with identification, or you can test your own knowledge. We will be running two different trails. For those who don't want to walk far we have a short tree trail, and for those who would like to explore more of the trees at the Botanic Gardens we have a longer trail.

Researchers from the Department of Plant Sciences will also be explaining why identification of tree species is important for protecting them against disease, and what you can do to help us protect trees against disease in the future.

All those who take part will receive a small prize, regardless of how many trees you are able to identify correctly!
