Workshop description:
This workshop will introduce participants to many of Ireland’s native and non-native tree & shrub species found here. However, this workshop comes with a twist – participants will be tasked with learning how to identify trees and shrubs during the winter months, when there is no foliage to assist in the identification. Following an introduction, overview, and insight into key identification features of Ireland’s trees and shrubs, participants will partake in a small bit of fieldwork within the environs of Herbert Park.  

Health & Safety:
Please be mindful that this workshop includes an element of teaching outdoors. Warm waterproof clothing and good walking footwear are essential. As a rule of thumb, it is generally expected that any participants who sign up for a workshop that involves spending time in the outdoors will own and bring the appropriate outdoor clothing.
