About this event

Fun ferns ID education session with ecologist Neill Talbot

In this morning ID education session with Neill Talbot of Avellana Ecology, in the Site of Special Scientific Interest and nature reserve of beautiful Leigh Woods, you will learn how to identify common woodland species of fern such as Hart's-tongue fern, Soft-shield fern and Polypody. We will look at various key features such as the frond shape, the pinnules and spores.

Neill will also talk about the folklore and uses of different fern species. Hand outs are provided for each attendee. At the end of our session we'll enjoy a hot drink at our Green Wood Barn with a chance to ask Neill questions.

Improve your identification skills and make some discoveries you can impress your friends with! This event is suitable for adults and students with little or no knowledge of woodland ferns. We remain socially distanced on this session and have a limit on numbers.

Please note: This event is weather-dependent and for safety reasons we will not be able to continue in very heavy rain or high winds. If this event is cancelled due to the above you will be fully refunded your ticket cost including Eventbrite fees. This event may be rescheduled in the case of cancellation, but there is no obligation to attend the rescheduled date. The session is accompanied by your My Green World tutor who is outdoor first aid trained and DBS checked.

FAQsWhat are my transport/parking options getting to the event? Enter Leigh Woods at the 'Forestry England Leigh Woods' sign off the A369 Abbots Leigh Road. This entrance to Leigh Woods is almost directly opposite the Clifton College sports complex. There is plenty of parking at the bottom of the long humped tree-lined drive in the Forestry England main car park. Forestry England charge £2.00 to park here. You can also access the car park on foot from other routes.  Meet your My Green World tutor by the sign boards at the beginning of the red and purple trails in the car park.
