The Body Language of Trees in a Karst Landscape

** This Event Is Fully Booked**

Celebrating the International Year of Caves & Karst

Join the Marble Arch Caves Ranger, Dr Kate Crane, on a walk down the Cladagh Glen National Nature Reserve looking at the species of trees, where they’re growing within this Karst landscape and how they’ve adapted to cope within this unique environment. Cladagh Glen is a steep-sided valley with shallow soils over limestone rock so, whilst the soils are fertile, the topography requires adaptations by the trees to make the most of their growing environment. Trees exhibit ‘Body Language’, visible responses to changes in their environment, and we will explore some of these within this ancient woodland.

Event Information 

The walk begins at the Marble Arch Caves Visitor Centre. Please register your arrival at reception 30 minutes prior to the walk beginning (please bring your booking confirmation with you).

Suitable for all ages. Unfortunately, the route is not wheelchair accessible since it is a linear route with some fairly steep steps and the remainder of the walk is along a gravel track.
