On Tetra Pak Tree Day many schools take the opportunity to participate in guided woodland walks at various locations throughout the country, enabling children to connect directly with nature in an enjoyable way. The walks are organised in cooperation with Tree Council member organisations including the National Parks & Wildlife Service, Coillte, the Heritage Service of the OPW, the Dublin local authorities and private owners.

To arrange a free guided woodland walk on or around Tetra Pak Tree Day at a location near your school please click on the county below that is closest to your school and view the contact list:
Note: All walks must be booked in advance to allow the management of schedules.

* Marked numbers can be contacted between
10.00 – 10.30am and 1.00 – 1.30pm only!
(List is constantly being updated by our team!)
