Treescapes: Supporting young people to collect data

Research and present information about treees in collaboration with children and young people.
This project will involve supporting children and young people to learn about and engage with treescapes across North West England, both in school settings and on field trips to parks and forests. Students will have the opportunity to research and present information about specific trees and treescapes through formal and informal engagement with primary, secondary and college-aged children and young people, including those from migrant and refugee-backgrounds. Students will be asked to 1) collect some basic baseline data for some key groups of species (i.e. birds/insects/soil invertebrates/ maybe surrounding vegetation) and 2) work with the children young people to continue collecting this data over the coming years. Looking at what additional benefits (in terms of associated biodiversity) there might be for different tree species and settings.
