2.  To advise and/or survey flora on Forest School Site or Outdoor Learning Area.

Although part of Forest School training is to identify as much of the Flora and Fauna on the Forest School Site, this can often become a sticking point for trainees and even with all the amazing apps. it can be easy to misidentify. A full list of plant species will be produced along with an indication of which are poisonous.

Any management /maintenance advice can also be provided.
