Everyone has heard ‘an old wives' tale’ about a certain tree species, some of which have a layer of truth within them, others are downright 'porky pies'. On this Tree or False? walkshop you are encouraged to investigate the myths and make up a few stories of your own.
The Ice Age Tree Trail was a Millennium Project by Trees for Cities in which specimens of each of the 34 species of trees to colonise Britain since the Ice age were identified or planted in the Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Gardens that surround the Imperial War Museum, close to Elephant & Castle in London SE1.
Here is what others have said about this fun walkshop:
-Fabulous! Thank you
-How nice to be led astray around the trees at the end of the day - often here before but have never visited the Ice Age Trail before.
-Thank you! Really good fun, informative, well thought out
-It's been a very interesting and funny walk. Thanks a lot.
-This walk was such fun I came twice and learnt even more about the trees in GMH Park.
-5 stars - Andrew was sparkling - didn't realise the IWM Park had a tree trail - great way to communicate the variety of trees
Guaranteed to be a informative and enjoyable this walkshop includes a field notebook for participants to collect leaves to create a memory and personal book from the event.
Tree or False? walkshops are participatory, so come prepared to have some fun, and be open to joining in - we are not the 'sage on the stage' type of walk. We will start at 6.30pm come rain or shine. Come prepared for whatever the weather and for treading on grass (no high heels on this walkshop).
Suitable for Adults / Families - accompanied children only
