Conifer Identification Workshop (outdoors), Gogerddan Woods, near Aberystwyth

Cardiganshire 29th January 2022
led by
Andy Jones

An introduction to most of the frequently grown conifers (and a few now growing wild) in west Wales, with a rich selection of 19th and 20th century estate woodland trees. The emphasis will be on easy identification and recognition tips but we will also encounter some unusual and rarely seen specimens. Midwinter botany to encourage you out into the field or simply assist conifer-spotting from a moving vehicle.

Meet: 10:30 am at Gogerddan Woods Car Park and Picnic Site, SN633836 (marked on OS Map 213 or search online "Natural Resources Wales, Gogerddan Woods" for more details and travel options). Walking boots essential; binoculars handy.
