3.1 Tree planting, seed collection and tree Nursery work - Tree seed collection walks
Join us to search for and collect tree seeds that can then be processed (different seeds need different treatments) to allow them to germinate.
We'll provide a guide on what to do with different types of seeds to get them to germinate at the right time. Ideally at least some of the volunteers will take them home to look after them until they are ready.
We will also be carrying out surveys and looking at other wildlife as we walk. to help you take part in this it's useful (but not essential) if you can download the iNaturalist app before you come.
locations will move around the national Park as follows
