Ever fancied getting involved in environmental research?

‘Track A Tree’ is looking for volunteers to become Citizen Ecologists, helping to capture changes in woodland trees and flowering plants during the Spring.

The project has been developed by researchers at the University of Edinburgh, supported by the Natural Environment Research Council and The Woodland Trust.

You’re free to choose which tree(s) to track – maybe there’s one in your garden or in a nearby park that would be ideal.
