Urban Tree Festival: Explore the Urban Forest – Stoke Newington
Sun 20 May, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm BST£10
Part of the first ever Urban Tree Festival, we are delighted to welcome Paul Wood, author of ‘London Street Trees’ (Guardian Nature Books of 2017) to entice you to Explore the Urban Forest in Stoke Newington
Discover the remarkable diversity of exotic and native trees planted in this part of Hackney – London’s Urban Arboretum. We will see rare trees such as Wild Service and one of London’s largest Handkerchief trees. The walk will start outside the Stoke Newington Tea House pub, on the corner of Bouverie Road and Stoke Newington Church Street and finish at the award winning Woodberry Wetlands nature reserve, where you’ll be free to stroll around the reserve and enjoy the wildlife and views as well as the Coal House Café.
We are crowdfunding to raise money to keep ticket prices low for events during the Urban Tree Festival – our crowdfunding campaign runs until the 1 May – and you can secure a ticket for this event by pledging £10 to our crowdfunder campaign. This not only secures you a ticket but also brings in a further £10 as Trees for Cities are match funding every pledge until we meet our target of £1,500. If you make a pledge and select a specific ticket, we will acknowledge it so you won’t need to buy a ticket after 1 May. If booking after 1 May please purchase tickets from here (booking fees apply).
