Autumn Fruits & Fungus

autumn fruits october 2015Autumn Fruits Walk

Next Sunday, 18th October, sees Steve Hallam leading an Autumn Fruits walk around Hillhouse Wood.  This walk will seek out berries, soft fruit, nuts & seeds along with any flowers & birds that might crop up en-route.  Steve will explain how these fruits have been used by humans and animals, the folklore about them, which ones should not be eaten – and what will happen to you if you do! You should expect to see around 20 types of berries, fruits and nuts.

The walk will take in Hillhouse Wood and surrounding hedgerows, and will thus be a little longer than normal.  Strong boots or wellies should be worn, as we may encounter long wet grass!

If you want to join us, met at the Old Church at 2pm (weather permitting).

The walk is arranged by the Friends of Hillhouse Wood in conjunction with the Woodland Trust.
