SEASHORE SAFARI

with Viv Halcrow 

Meet at Berneray Community Hall car park

Thursday 30 June at 1pm

 

Meet at Berneray Community Hall car park for 1pm prompt  (the tide does not wait!) to car-share to East Beach (Traigh Beasdaire) grid reference NF934 817

Duration: 1.5 hours 

Terrain: Rough terrain, stout footwear or wellies recommended

Come and join Viv Halcrow, Local Marine Ecologist, for an informal exploration of some of the common plants and intriguing animals of the rocky seashore, at low tide.  We will see some familiar seaweeds, maybe some unusual ones, and lots of interesting critters, some of which you’ll know and some you might not! We will find out how they all cope with life in the intertidal zone, where conditions change all the time.

Wear clothes appropriate to the weather, and wellies or be prepared to have wet feet! Bring a magnifying glass if you have one. Suitable for all ages, but very uneven, rocky and slippery underfoot. Participation is at your own risk. No dogs please.

Maximum 10 people – please book. No charge but donations to Berneray Community Hall re-roofing project very welcome.
