What cracking weather it, in fact it couldn’t be more perfect for getting outside and enjoying British Tree Week which launched yesterday, Monday 3rd October.
The aim of British Tree Week, which is brought to us by the Woodland Trust, the Ramblers and Bosch, is to encourage us Britons to explore our woodlands and parks to learn more about our trees.
As part of British Tree Week, the Ramblers are conducting a series of walks throughout the country to showcase the beauty and diversity of our woodland – as well as educating people on how to spot our native trees. In addition, the Woodland Trust, the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity, will be providing information on our native trees and helping people to spot them based on their shape, leaves and seeds – a staple of gardens, pavements and parks during the Autumn period.
To join in the fun, I’ve already been out and about myself and as well as highlighting this fabulous campaign, I’ve put together some other inspiring Autumn walk resources and fun, eco-friendly ideas for all of the family.
To find out more, just take a look at my short video and then visit the sites below, but be quick with the weather about turn, this might be the last time this year you’ll get a chance to kick some crispy golden leaves about.
