Join local ornithologist Michael Turner on this guided walk and discover the wildlife that has reclaimed the Land of Oak & Iron.
To link in with the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), local ornithologist Michael Turner will be leading this walk in the lower Derwent Valley, looking at the variety of plants, trees and animals. Once a place of heavy industry, this area is now rich in wildlife, from lichen and fungi to birds and mammals.
As well as helping with identification, the walk will explore the interaction between some species and the problems caused by invasive non-native organisms.
The walk will be on regular footpaths and forest tracks with some steep steps. Please dress appropriately with stout footwear and bring binoculars if you have them. Sorry no dogs.
On returning to the Heritage Centre, there is the option to purchase brunch or a drink from café shrub as you chat about the nature spotted on your walk.
Limited places to allow for social distancing. Sorry no dogs.
Tickets £9.50 per person
