About the Event

Trees have been the subjects of myths and legends since prehistoric times. Herbalists and healers have long used trees in traditional medicine and healing rituals and still do today 🌳 This Halloween, join me on a walk in the woods as we head into the darkest part of the year to learn about the ancient magic and mystery surrounding our native trees, the central roles that they have played in our folklore - from fending off evil spirits to charming away warts - as well as sharing some terrible tales! 👻

This event is aimed at adults but is suitable for older children accompanied by an adult 18+.

Venue: We will meet in Park Lane car park Slindon, West Sussex, BN18 0QY.

How to book: Select the number of attendees below and pay online. Or email me to book your space and pay via bank transfer.

What to bring: Sturdy boots, water. Dogs are very welcome if they are calm and friendly but ideally kept on a lead as we will be stopping lots to look at trees!

About the tutor: Hi, I'm Emily. I'm a freelance ecologist, I work for Bumblebee Conservation Trust and hold a BSc in Wildlife Conservation and a post-grad certificate in Ecological Consultancy. I began teaching wildlife workshops in 2019 and my approach has always been fun, informal and effective for students who wish to foster a deeper connection with nature. I have a soft-spot for bumblebees, solitary bees, butterflies, bats, trees and wildflowers. I am a friendly and welcoming teacher who loves to share my passion for nature through engaging, outdoor learning.
