CPRE Hedgerow Heroes project

Hedgerow Walks

Join us for a Walk Around the Hedges looking at hedgerow plants, flowers, trees and fungi. Learn to identify a healthy hedge and how hedges can be managed to keep them healthy and biodiverse.

 

We plan to run several walks throughout the summer and autumn in the Clun and Bishops Castle area and further afield where possible. All walks are free of charge but booking is essential.

If you would like more information on these walks when it becomes available, please sign up to our mailing list here.
