Kati Fitzhenry, Chair and biodiversity officer of Friends of the Byes, a local volunteer organisation run with the specific aim of improving biodiversity and supporting environmental education in the Byes.
The walk will cover the history of how the use of the land along this particular section of the river Sid that we call the Byes has changed over the ages. We will also look at how biodiversity has been expanded especially over the last 10+years. Do you know for example why it is called the ‘Byes’? Join us and find out!
|Approximate length of walk |
Short, slow walk
|Type of terrain |
Easy walking with occasional inclines. We may be walking ‘off piste’ on grassy paths too so please wear suitable footwear and dress appropriately for the weather.
|What should I bring |
Nothing to bring but yourself and a healthy dose of curiosity. If you have any stories to share about the history of the Byes we would love to hear them!
Who should attend
Aimed at the general public of all ages.
