Listen to our Trees at St Nicks AGM
Sat 15 Sep 2018 at 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
St Nicks Environment Centre, Rawdon Avenue, York, YO10 3ST
Programme of the day:
“Have you ever thought what goes on behind the bark of a tree? The Tree Listening Project uses highly sensitive microphones to make audible the inner workings of trees. We hear the rumble of the tree moving and the popping of the water as it mixes with air on its way up through the Xylem tubes just behind the bark, the very life of the tree surging up from the roots towards the leaves.”
So says Alex Metcalfe who will give a short presentation on his The Tree Listening Project, which has enthused Judi Dench amongst many others around the UK, after a poetic introduction by our patron and local poet Anneliese Emmans Dean. After that we’ll head out into the nature reserve to have a listen and learn something new about our trees!
The event is supported by the People’s Postcode Trust.
