Description

Join the Bridgend Group for a walk through three beautiful nature reserves on Gower, led by Rose Revera, People and Wildlife Officer for the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales.

The Cwm Ivy and Betty Church reserves consist primarily of limestone woodlands and are managed by our own Trust. They stand on an escarpment overlooking Whiteford Burrows and Dunes, which are managed by the National Trust. Salt marsh, dunes and woodlands offer varied habitats for a wide range of special plants. After lunch, we will travel to Port Eynon by car for a walk along the South Gower Coast reserves, including Overton Mere and Long Hole Cliff, to look for the spring calcareous grassland wildflowers. Bluebells Vaughn Matthews
