About

Friends of the Lake District: Flora & Fauna of a Traditional Farmstead High Lickbarrow Farm has recently been given to the National Trust. The farm has been managed organically for many decades and has been managed in very traditional ways. Much of the land is designated SSSI. We shall look at the flora of this farm. On the farm and nearby are some interesting small tarns and, should the weather be suitable, an introduction to Lakeland damsel and dragonflies will be given. The decision on whether or not the Lake District will be given World Heritage Site inscription will be made this summer. We will discuss the potential implications of such a decision. We hope also to have a debate with you about the issue of dogs in the countryside. Terrain and activity: Easy but boots are needed as some parts are rough underfoot. Timings: 10:00am - 3:00pm Location: GR SD417974 Parking at venue but please share cars as parking is exceeding limited All sessions are booked on a first come first served basis. Please bring: a picnic lunch & clothing/footwear for all weathers. (Please note there is no indoor backup venue so the sessions will go ahead in poor weather unless unreasonable or unsafe to do so) Workshop provider: Ian Brodie – Open Spaces Society
