South Lakes

Natural History

Co-ordinator: Sarah Harvey
Meetings: Monthly, 2nd Wednesday, 2.15pm (2.30pm from October) Castle Street Centre

Winter talks and summer outings covering many fascinating Natural History subjects. Winter meetings are from October to March.
Some members have opted to be winter members only.

During the summer months i.e. April to September inclusive, our meetings are held outdoors at varying locations, Wednesdays once or twice a month. Please note that there are no meetings in August. We have walks any time with different start times and may be a half or a full day. We sometimes have evening walks of 3miles duration max. We meet whatever the weather.

We are all learning from each other; some members have a great wealth of knowledge and are happy to share. Our list of suggested topics is endless and we are looking forward to plenty of exploration and learning in the months ahead: do join us if you wish to learn or have expertise to offer – you will be very welcome.

It would be wise to check with Sarah Harvey re field trips in case there have been changes or if you need more information.

UPDATE JULY

Our summer outings have been informative and numbers attending are slowly recovering after covid.

On the Sizergh Barn Trail members enjoyed sightings of Kingfisher, unusual Tufa and heard about the history of the gunpowder works.

We saw Green Winged orchids at Silverdale Lots; a Mawson garden which is being renovated near Jack Scout which holds a 'dipping pond' for Edwardian gardeners and Snowdrop trees.

At Lowick Common CWT reserve we dabbled for medicinal leeches, saw Cranberry flowering, a lethargic slow worm and an unusual moth named Mother Shipton.
