Year of The Tree Launched

Nearly 50 EEL members and visitors attended the launch of Year of the Tree. They joined Councillors Amal Ghusain and David Harvey in unexpected sunshine in Belmont Park, Exeter to plant a native oak tree, as a symbol and lasting legacy of our Year of the Tree 2020 initiative. Hot chocolate and cake went down well alongside wise words from guest speaker Dr Kirsten Pullen, Director of Conservation and Education for the Wild Planet Trust. Buzzing conversation, new members coming together and generous donations helped the afternoon feel like a great success. 2020 will see a programme of activities to support Year of the Tree, please do get involved.
