Hackney Marsh User Group are carrying out a survey of the woodland around the eastern fringe of Hackney Marsh this spring. We will record the trees, shrubs and ground flora to establish a base-line for monitoring changes over time. The data we gather will help us understand the significance of this area of woodland and contribute to Hackney's biodiversity action plan and to the Greenspace Information for Greater London (GiGL). Learn how to identify and record size, condition and species of trees, shrubs and plants, create useful records, and most important get out and about in your local greenspace.
Free sessions but limited places so we can provide enough materials for everyone. To book a place email firstname.lastname@example.org; you will be sent a link to a schedule where you can choose your preferred sessions. Weekday and weekend options.
