FOBP reproduce this rather lovely sounding invitation from Daniel Greenwood of the London Wildlife Trust:
Please find attached a poster for our upcoming Winter Tree ID walk at Sydenham Hill Wood on Sunday 25th January from 13:00-15:00. Please meet inside the Crescent Wood Road entrance, wear sturdy footwear and clothing suitable for the conditions.
This walk is designed to help you to learn how to identify trees when not in leaf. As remnant ancient woodland, Sydenham Hill Wood has a range of native tree species but also, after the development of Victorian villas and resulting gardens, there are a number of non-native and exotic trees which can also be found. This walk is a good way to get into the natural and cultural history of the Great North Wood, its trees, and its continuing relevance to our way of life today.
This is a free walk, donations are welcome. Thank you to everyone who came to our events in 2014, we counted over 1100 people, more than double that of 2013. You have also been very generous in donating over £1,600 towards our work in economically challenging times. We value the interest and contributions of our supporters and visitors to our reserves greatly.
And finally, we have released a short film about our conservation work at Sydenham Hill Wood which you can watch online here.
I’d like to wish you all a Happy New Year on behalf of London Wildlife Trust staff and our wonderful volunteers.
Very best wishes,
Conservation Project Officer, Sydenham Hill Wood
