Tree-mendous fun at Burton Mere Wetlands
RSPB Burton Mere Wetlands, on the Dee Estuary, is inviting people to help celebrate National Tree Week by offering the chance to plant their very own tree on Sunday 2 December.
The nature reserve has a good amount of mixed woodlands to explore and several new tree and hedge planting sessions have already taken place.
Paul Brady, RSPB Visitor Development Officer, said: “National Tree Week is a fantastic event and we are pleased to be taking part. This is a great chance to do something positive for the environment. Not everybody has a garden big enough to plant a tree so why not come and plant one at your local RSPB reserve.”
During the event there will be a number of free family activities, including bark rubbing, a tricky tree quiz trail and a tree identification walk. A local nursery will be supplying native trees and hedges for sale over the weekend.
RSPB staff and volunteers will also be on hand to provide advice on the many different kinds of wildlife, with a free guided walk taking place at 2pm on the day. There will be plenty of free wildlife-friendly gardening advice available.
Please phone 0151 353 8478 for times, details and a full programme of activities. Alternatively email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.rspb.org.uk/burtonmerewetlands.
