2016 - 9th Worthing & Adur Eco-summit. National Trust Slindon Estate workshop - Seasons Out of Time

Tue 21 Jun 2016

This workshop looked at the changing seasons and how they affect the wildlife around us, from trees losing their leaves in autumn to visiting birds such as the swallow in spring.  The National Trust Slindon Estate want to celebrate our British seasons by creating a temporary art installation in our woodland and pupils were involved in creating this.  This included making decorative hessian ‘tree coats’ which will be wrapped around some of our ancient trees.  These ‘tree coats’ will tell a story of the seasons and help us to understand how climate change may alter them and how nature must adapt to survive.  Pupils ll learnt about ‘seasonal shift’ and its impact on plants and wildlife when weather patterns are unexpected or extreme.
