              Ancient Hazel Project

In autumn, the ancient woods found in Saltburn's Valleys become transformed by the appearance of the fruiting bodies of an impressive array of fungi: multicoloured toadstools, bracket fungi and even crystal jellies! 

As part of the Saltburn Valleys CIO Ancient Hazel Project, local fungus expert Alan Simkins will be leading two walks to discover just how prolific these ancient oak and hazel woodlands are for fungi.

Fungi of Saltburn Gill,  Thursday 17th October. 1.30pm. Meet at Cat Nab Car Park

Fungi of Riftswood,  Tuesday 22nd October . 1.30pm. Meet at the Saltburn Valley Gardens Woodland Centre

It is essential to book a place so please call 01287 636382 or email info@teeswildlife.org.

Wear warm clothes and sensible shoes as the paths may be wet and muddy.  Both walks begin at 1.30 pm and will last for approximately two hours

These walks are supported by funding from National Lottery players through the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

There will be more activities in November and December -  and at the start of next year in late January/ early February there will be an event at the Woodland Centre with an exhibition of the photographs being taken at the walks and activities.

Your feedback on these activities would be much appreciated.
