The Friends of Dacres Wood have there April open day coming up this Saturday – 1.00 pm to 4.00, so everyone is welcome to have a look round. The reserve is looking very spring like, but the paths are still flooded. We can lend wellies, and in kids sizes too.
 
They are also planning a tree identification and measuring activity which will help them get a proper map of their trees for the first time, and an idea of how old some of them are.

They’ve roughly divided the reserve up into 12 regions (see map above) and made a list of which of the total 17 species in the woods that we’ve spotted in each of them. They’ve also noted where the really huge trees are which will need two people to get a tape measure or just some string round them.
