Saturday 29th May 9.00-11.00am
In this morning session in Leigh Woods you will be looking for exactly why Leigh Woods is so special and earns its position as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Mike Dilger will be using his experience as a botanist & ecologist to help us search for and identify some of those special plants and flowers which we might hope to find at this time of year. Will we be able to find Bristol rock cress or will we be lucky enough to come across some of the early flowering orchids? Whatever we find, we will enjoy identifying a variety of woodland plants.
Mike is best known for his regular appearances as the wild man on BBC1s The One Show, for which he has presented over 450 films over the last decade. Happiest when talking about anything from Bumblebees to Basking Sharks, Mike also covers a variety of wildlife and environmental issues for BBC1s regional affairs programme Inside Out.
Please note: This event is weather-dependent and for safety reasons we will not be able to continue in very heavy rain or high winds. In the event of the above you will be fully refunded including your Eventbrite fee. This session is for those with little or no knowledge in this specialism.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event? Enter Leigh Woods at the Forestry England Leigh Woods sign on the Abbots Leigh Road (A369). There is plenty of parking in the main Forestry England car park at the bottom of the long humped tree-lined avenue. Forestry England charge £2.00 to park in their car park. Meet your My Green World tutor by the sign boards at the beginning of the red and purple trails in the car park.
