Now is the time!
Nature has been and will continue to be here for us during the Covid-19 pandemic in Cornwall. This is a chance to get involved and do something good for nature in return.
Increasing tree cover is a natural solution to climate change and one of the positive ways we can play our part in tackling the climate and ecological crisis. It also benefits wildlife by creating habitats for birds, insects and other animals. Anyone and everyone can get involved - it’s a simple activity, can be done within social distancing guidelines and is a great way for people to connect with nature.
Cornwall Wildlife Trust are encouraging all members, families and everyone across Cornwall to get out into nature over the next few weeks to collect acorns and other tree seeds.
Cornwall Wildlife Trust has produced a step-by-step guide bursting with all the information you need to grow seeds into saplings, helping to contribute to Cornwall Council’s target of the Forest for Cornwall covering 2% of the land by 2030.
