Circular walk, around Braunton taking in the Beacon with Pete Yeo, a reconciliation ecologist and nature connections guide.
This circular walk, roughly two hours in duration, will depart from the Countryside Centre and peak on Braunton's Beacon Trail, with its views over the heart of the North Devon Biosphere Reserve. Aside from a scenic walk rich in wellbeing, Pete will invite contemplation of the biocultural footprint of horticulture in this area, touching on gardening styles, exotic plants gone wild, and climate change, amongst other things. Looking ahead too, what could the future hold for our relationship with plants, and how might we meet it well?
The walk is family friendly and suitable for older children. The walk will involve a hill climb so suitable footwear and outdoor clothing is recommended. Due to Covid 19 restrictions, places for this event will be limited.
