Monday 8th February 2015: Life in the Trees

The theme for our February indoor meeting was ‘Life in the Trees’.

The session started with lots of intriguing tree-based puzzles, mazes and wordsearches .


Leader Martin explained the structure of trees and how a huge range of different creatures depend on these incredible plants for food and shelter.


We created a living sculpture of the structure of a tree – everything from the tap root, lateral roots and heartwood to the xylem, phloem and bark (complete with actions and noises to represent the functions of each part).


Wildlife Explorers then created a ‘Wishes Tree’ – writing their hopes for positive future changes  for wildlife and the environment.

Older wildlife and Phoenix completed a difficult Bird ID challenge   -with the two teams identifying correctly a wide range of bird photos using different ID books and charts.
