Tree Walks Of Sefton Park with Andrea Ku

TREE WALK #1: WINTER TREES
SUNDAY 21 JAN / 1–3PM / SEFTON PARK
Introduction to winter trees in Sefton Park – a winter walk to identify some key evergreen and semi-deciduous trees in Sefton Park. Discover what trees there are, why do some trees have leaves on all year round, what these leaves look like. Also what insect, bird and mammal species do these trees provide that others cannot. It is also Squirrel Appreciation Day and we will talk about the park’s squirrels and their lives. We will be calculating the age and height of the trees using simple measuring tools and tag those trees with the information as well as the species name.
REGISTER HERE

 

TREE WALK #2: DECIDUOUS TREES
SUNDAY 18 FEB / 1–3PM / SEFTON PARK
Introduction to deciduous winter trees in Sefton Park – a winter walk to identify some key deciduous trees in Sefton Park. Discover what they are, why they lose their leaves and how to identify winter trees through leaf litter, bark patterns, twigs and buds. We will also be hanging some ready made and home made bird feeders. We will be taking bark rubbings of the trees to show the textures and ages of trees.
REGISTER HERE

 

TREE WALK #3: EARLY SPRING
SUNDAY 17 MAR / 1–3PM / SEFTON PARK
Introduction to early spring in Sefton Park – a walk to discover the plants and insects that have begun to emerge and call Sefton Park their home. We will discover the new tree flowers, why trees produce flowers, what is pollination and who Sefton Park’s pollinators are. We will do a bee walk to find the habitats and forage of different bee types and species.
REGISTER HERE

 

TREE WALK #4: MID SPRING
SUNDAY 21 APRIL / 1–3PM / SEFTON PARK
Mid spring walk in Sefton Park – a walk to discover mid spring birds, bees and trees and the value they have in Sefton Park to the park as a whole and to our health and wellbeing. During the walk, we will talk about the history of the Sefton Park landscape and why we have ‘wilder’ areas today. We will visit some of the more hidden ‘off the beaten path’ areas of the park to see the different habitats the park provides and learn how the wilder, overgrown areas are good for nature. We will also look at what plants grow in these areas, discuss ‘what are weeds’ and the value that wild/weedy areas are to a formal park.
REGISTER HERE

 

TREE WALK #5: CITIZEN SCIENCE
MONDAY 20 MAY / 6–7.30PM / SEFTON PARK
Celebrating Sefton Park’s 152nd birthday!
We will take a citizen science walk through the park to identify and record tree, bee, plant, bird and mammal species in the park. We will also talk about the differences between them and where they are on the tree of life (and where we as humans fit into that!)
REGISTER HERE

 

Further Information:

– Meet at the cafe next to Eros Fountain by the side ramp entrance.

– All sessions: Please feel free to bring along your cameras or phones to capture the trees and what they offer for wildlife in the park. 

– Please wear appropriate clothing for each walk. The ground may be slippery, muddy or wet and the temperatures in January and February may be very cold.

– During spring, there may be chances of high pollen ratings so please take precautions if you suffer from hay fever.

– If we get over 25 people in a group, there may be difficulty hearing Andrea. Please be aware of this if you are hard of hearing. 

– Andrea will provide laminated handouts to be used during the walks for participants to refer to.

 

Submit your Tree Story:

These walks are part of a project that invites the public to help us create a history of the Liverpool City Region through its trees. Its resilience, strength and its diverse and fascinating story.

We want this project to grow and expand, so now we’re asking for your stories. Take a picture of a tree that means something to you and upload it here, along with a few words about what makes it important.
