Duration: 90 minutes

Maximum numbers: 15 children

Our ancestors have made use of terrific trees for hundreds of years. Whether in constructing timber frames for a home or other building, making tools or furniture or using the resource to keep warm there is much evidence of it all around us.

During this workshop students will learn how to identify a small number of common species of tree and know some of their characteristics. They will find out how to work out the age of a tree and why this may be important, as well as discovering different uses of trees that were essential in the past.

The 90-minute session takes the form of a guided walk with some hands-on activities.
