WS: Dare Valley Country Park – Cancelled
September 16, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm
Leaders: Brian & Sue Dockerill
The Dare Valley Park was opened in 1973 as the result of the restoration of former colliery sites. Covering over 450 acres it ranges from woodland and scrub through grassland to cliffs and scree’s, the home of the less usual ferns. Altogether the botany is of such interest that Tim Rich and Ceri Gait, whom some of you will know, have published a book covering the wild flowers of the park.
Twenty-five ferns and fern allies have been recorded there – we may not see them all, but we’ll try our best!
There is a park website at http://www.darevalleycountrypark.co.uk/index.php/en/
We will finalise specific meeting arrangements, including parking, in the update a few weeks before we meet. A packed lunch plus suitable clothing for the weather and good footwear will be required.
We will send out more details a couple of weeks before the dates but for more information on any of the trips or to express an interest please contact: Brian and Sue Dockerill e-mail: SouthWalesBorders@eBPS.org.uk.
