Heaths and wildflowers



Tutor: Owen Mountford

Time: 10:00 - 13:00

Heaths are amongst the most threatened habitats in lowland Britain. Treatment with lime and fertilisers has eliminated heathland from counties such as Cambridgeshire, though significant areas survive in Breckland and in Bedfordshire. The course will look at local heaths and compare them with more extensive examples in the north and west of Britain. It will introduce the flowers of heathland and how heaths are shaped by climate and management.
