Your Visit to Fowlescombe Farm - 28th October 17
As part of the Devon Hedge Week - 21st - 29th October 2017, CREST will be hosting 2 'Walk and Talk' sessions on Hedgerow Ecology.
1) The first session (am) will be a short walk where we will talk you through a little on the History - and the Natural History of the 'Hedgerow' and discuss how important these habitats are for wildlife on the farm, plus how important they are for stabilising the soil.
2) The second session (pm) is a little more challenging, it is a little further to walk, and we will spend some time identifying the plants in the hedgerow and assessing its ecological status. We may also see some fungi and invertebrates so we will have identification guides for these too.
Light refreshments will be provided.
Date: 28th October2017
Two 'Walk & Talk' Sessions - One easy - One a little more challenging.
Cost: Only £6 for the first session, or £10 if you would like to stay and join us for the second session
