Interested in being a Tree Walk Leader, but not sure of the best way to start? Or maybe you are already a walk leader and would like to brush up on your skills and learn something new. This workshop is for you!
Consider joining a group of experienced CATS Tree Walk leaders at Ivy Creek on Saturday, March 18th, 2023 from 1 to 4 in the afternoon. We’ll be covering the basics for planning, developing and leading tree walks in a relaxed interactive session, with lots of discussion and field activity.
Tree Walks are a crucial part of our mission to educate the public and inspire them to engage with the natural world. Tree Walks are consistently fully booked. We’d love to offer more walks. Any CATS member who is at all inclined in this direction is encouraged to attend to learn more. If you have a fellow member you are close with, consider leading a walk as a team. You’ll find that the back and forth discussion you naturally have with your friends about trees and the natural world can form the basis for discussion with your participants.
We have a lot of support materials to guide you through the process. Tree Walk leaders often tell us that this activity – leading a walk – is by far and away the most satisfying part of their stewardship practice, and often surprises with new knowledge.
