To get started you'll need:
The Tree Council Seed Spotter Guide
A small bag or container to collect your seeds
A magnifying glass (optional)
A notepad and pen
let's go seed spotting
Walk around the garden or the park and keep your eyes wide open. Look on the ground, under trees, and even near flowers. Seeds can be hiding in the most unexpected places
When you find a seed, gently pick it up and put it in your bag. Remember, seeds are like nature's little secrets, so treat them with care
Notice the seed's shape, colour, and size. Is it round, flat, or maybe even spikey? You can use your magnifying glass to take a closer look
Look at the pictures in the guide and try to find the seed that looks just like the one you found
Keep track of your discoveries in your notepad – you can even have a go at drawing them
Have a great time seed spotting, and don't forget to say thanks to the trees and plants for sharing their secrets with you!
