Travel, Pollution & Waste - Street trees: A breath of fresh air

Street Trees: A breath of fresh air  

With Suntrap Forest Centre 

 

Session for primary schools

 

Find out about why trees in urban areas are vital, both to help reduce climate warming and to mitigate the effects of that warming for town and city dwellers. We will let you know how you can take action in your area to help protect and look after your local street trees.  

 

Suntrap Forest Centre, based in Epping Forest, offers outdoor environmental activities for schools, families, and community groups. All our visitors are given the opportunity to learn about our natural environment here in the forest, along with positive actions they can take to tackle the climate and ecological emergencies. We equip all our visitors with age-appropriate knowledge and experiences; helping them to make choices to protect the environment going into the future.
