Ecoedu and naturalist Kartikeyan S. designed a pocket field guide for common avenue trees found in Bengaluru and other Indian cities in Kannada.
Bengaluru, the garden city, full of flowering trees. What are the names of those trees, when do they flower, how old are they, how big will they grow? This information is not easily available for the non english speaking part of our community. Well versed with the local avenue trees, Karthikeyan will develop a pocket field guide in Kannada to enhance quality of information and education for people who have limited access to internet. This project will be complemented with the design skills of EduEco.
