Join Rangers for journey of discovery on Bidston Hill
12:55pm Tuesday 1st October 2013 in News
WIRRAL Rangers and the Friends of Bidston Hill are inviting visitors to join them on two journeys of discovery next weekend.
The first walk on Saturday combines an exploration of the different types of fungi and mushrooms that grow up on Bidston Hill. Basic tips will be given on how people can get the best out of their cameras.
Local woodsman Keith Matthews and artist and photographer Rob Flynn will teach people how to distinguish different mushrooms using a selection of books.
The sessions will run twice on Saturday, beginning at 10am and 1pm and last two hours. Waterproof clothing is advised … as well as a camera.
The hill is uneven and rocky parts and fungus often grows in inaccessible places, which could create difficulties for people with mobility issues.
On Sunday Ranger Nic Harding will join Keith Matthews in leading a walk entitled 'Bidston's Bounty'.
The walks explores Bidston Hill, its trees and plants. It starts at 10am and lasts for around three hours.
For both walks, meet at Tam O’Shanter Urban Farm.
Places are limited, so it is important to book in advance and there will be a small charge of £2 for each walk.
People can book at Birkenhead Park Visitors Centre or by telephone on 0151 652 5197.
When booking the 'Fungal Photography Foray' the type of camera to be used should be identified.
