Arches Local launch digital tree trail walk through Luton Millennium Green

Using the ticl.me app, our friends at the community group Arches Local have put together a digital tree trail walk through the Luton Millennium Green and beyond!

Along the digital tree trail, Arches Local has marked the many different species of trees in the Green, other fauna, as well as local points of interest for passersby to take a look at.

The new digital tree trail is the perfect companion for your next walk through Luton Millennium Green, and more points will be added to the map over time.
