Whitefiled Tree Walk by EcoEdu

Ideally suited as a morning outing for your family, the walk will introduce many of the avenue trees, the stories behind them and their relationship to other creatures. We will also observe common birds & butterflies, and the little known and seldom observed smaller creatures that one commonly sees in the city.

This walk will help you further develop your interest in wildlife photography, travel writing, and nature sketching by teaching basic identification techniques and introducing you to a wealth of information. The group will be led by naturalists with more than two decades of experience in the field.

h4. Schedule

The walk will start in front of the CSI Memorial Church, Near the Whitefield Club. We will amble around at leisure around the Inner Circle road, reaching the municipal park. We will take in the sights and sounds, learning about the avenue trees that dot our city, while not ignoring other living creatures that we encounter. The outing will last for about two and a half hours.
