"Coastal Plant Identification Walk - Know your native plants"
In October wildflowers will be everywhere, as we take a walk through Heathland, Dunes and the important Saltmarsh areas of Beechford. Get to know the local plants and learn how native vegetation provides erosion control, wind protection, habitat for birds, insect pollinators, fish and more. Along the way we will find all sorts of animals and spot some bush-tucker too. Presenter: Anna Povey
