Altye Burn Ecological Walk

Mon, 15 June 2020 @ 10:00 - 13:00

A popular event, first held last year, which follows a circular route through different habitats from open moorland to dense ancient woodland.

Come and enjoy this fairly flat, circular, route along the famous Dava way and back through the Altyre forest. We will look at the broad range of different habitats and ecosystems along the way, discussing their ecology, history and function. We will also snack on a few wild foraged bits found along the way and enjoy the variety of views from open moorland to dense ancient woodland.

Ruaraidh Milne has been foraging in nature for over 30 years and now teaches bushcraft and environmental education for various charities and organisations around Moray and the Highlands as well as running his own events
