Westbrook Work Party – Tree Survey

Sunday, 30th April, 10am-12 noon

Due to the bird nesting season, this month’s work party will be a tree survey, rather than a full stream clear. Don’t worry if you’re not an expert on tree recognition – you can partner with someone who is.

If you can come along please:

join us at 10am in the garden of 46 Tanners Street, Faversham – come in via the white gates please
– hear a short welcome, briefing and collect equipment
– take part in a tree survey. We will also probably collect some litter as we go along, so do wear old clothes and bring gloves as usual.

We look forward to seeing you! Thank you very much.
