16/08/2024 | Am I in a rainforest? Easy walk

Walk overview

Yes, Britain has rainforests! But is this one? That’s what we aim to find out. We learn why some south-west woodlands are temperate rainforests rich in biodiversity that support rare plants and animals, and feel rather magical. Enter a world of trees clothed in green moss; ferns creeping along their branches, and lichens adorning their twiggy tips. We explore what makes these woodlands so precious and develop our appreciation of this very special habitat. Suitable for adults and children 7 years and over with an interest in nature.

16/08/2024 | Introduction to Mosses, Ferns and Lichens Easy walk

Walk overview

We slow down to take a closer look at ‘lower plants’; the mosses, ferns and lichens we might otherwise stride past (and yes, lichens aren’t technically plants). These primitive organisms were vital to the evolution of life on earth and continue to play essential ecological roles. You will appreciate their variety and beauty so much more, especially as you see their detail with the aid of a hand lens.
