Introduction to Conifer Identification

Conifers are an ever fascinating group of plants that evolved way before we had the flowering plants that we know and love today.

During this fun and interactive workshop you will have the chance to learn some of the key physical characteristics that will help you identify different conifers to family groups, be signposted to several resources that can help you with your continued learning, as well as learn about some of the ethnobotanical uses of this fascinating group of plants.
Half the workshop will be inside and half outside looking at specimens in the woodlands alongside and near the Findhorn river.

Who is the workshop for?
Nature lovers, forest school leaders, mountain guides, gardeners, tree surgeons, bushcrafters, forest bathing and ecotherapist, complete beginners… all welcome!
What to Bring:
– Warm clothes for when we head outside
– Walking boots
– Waterproofs
– Notebook
– Lunch and snacks (though there is a fabulous cafe at Logie steading that you can get good food from too)

*Please can you let Jennie know of any additional learning needs (i.e. dyslexia) or medical conditions prior to the start of the course.

The nearest train station is Forres and a shuttle service will be put on for those who want to travel by train.
