This walk will mainly focus on the plants in the area and we will discuss their associated folklore, along with their culinary and medicinal uses. We will also identify the seaweeds that we find on the beach.
We will have a seashell hunt for the children, where they will have a set amount of time to collect as many different shells as they can find and then we will try to identify them. Make sure they bring along their seaside buckets!
