Here's a meetup that will be especially useful and interesting to anyone going on the July 28th tree walk (though it's open to all) - a basic native tree ID workshop at the Holland Park Ecology Centre! Hone your ID skills and learn to recognize some native tree species with a member of the education team at the ecology centre, who will teach us about tree ID using examples of trees found in Holland Park.
This is also a good opportunity to learn more about the Holland Park Ecology Centre, which hosts quite a number of events for adults and also for families throughout the year.
The workshop is free of charge and, as with the mini-beast walk that I've also posted, booking was essential. I managed to grab the final 6 spaces left and reserve them for our group. For that reason I will have to limit RSVPs to 5 + me, but if you don't get a space please do add yourself to the waiting list in case anyone drops out.
And again, because RSVPs are limited, please do not sign up unless you are quite sure that you will be able to make it, as it's not fair to others who may not get a spot (or to me, who will not look good on the evening if I show up with fewer people than I reserved limited spaces for!).
We will meet outside of the Holland Park Ecology Centre at 6:15. I'm easy to recognize these days if you've not attended a meetup before - just look for the pregnant lady with dark hair, milling about near the entrance. :)
Here are some very useful directions on getting to the ecology centre, which is situated in the middle of Holland Park:
Looking forward to meeting some new people and hopefully seeing some familiar faces as well!
