Theme (optional): Lessons we have learned from trees
Important! Put “Festival of the Trees” in the subject line of your email
Close your eyes and consider: have you ever understood something more clearly because of a tree? From Beyond the Brambles our 62nd host Kate Natick asks each of us to share a lesson we’ve learned from trees. For the August Festival of the Trees you can tell us a story, share your latest research, or simply show us something you’ve just learned about a familiar tree where you live.
Don’t think you’ve ever learned anything from a tree? Think again! Remember the first time you spotted a nest in a tree? Do you ever spend time with trees when things get difficult? Perhaps metaphors of trees help you to better understand the world or yourself? Maybe you’re a scientist who mines data from tree rings or pollen records to know more about the Earth?
If you’re not sure where to start, try a visit to the local arboretum, or perhaps contact your friendly local arborist to sign up for their next nature walk. Get out in the woods and discover what you may be overlooking! (Then share your treasure online and send us the link.)
