Woodland Walking in the Beacons

Tree Identification; Natural Creation 


Woodland Walk with Eco-Art


Young people are lead on a walk around the local woods here in the Brecon Beacons, encouraging them to observe their natural surroundings. What trees can be identified? What are the leaf structures, seed pods and bark patterns that help us know which tree is which? On the woodland floor, how do the plants and flowers respond to the tree's around them? How does this habitat change with the trees?

Bringing back twigs, leaves, pine cones and a whole myriad of interesting finds, we then use these to create amazing natural sculptures which the young people can take home.  


Learning outcomes:

  • Improved knowledge of trees flowers and plants of the forest and how to identify them.

  • Improved dexterity and appropriate hand tool use.

  • Improved material recognition and manipulation
