(Identification) A survey carried out in 2013 showed that 43% of people asked, could not identify an Oak when presented with an image of one. This summer, I have been trying to (re)learn how to identify a number of basic trees and plants- something i was better able to do as a child than as an adult. Knowing more about what is around you is so vital to our connection to nature and to rewilding ourselves- how can we care enough to save species that we can't even identify? These are a few things that sit on my bookshelf and the #gatekeeper
guides are particularly good for beginners.... any other recommendations?
