Coastal Plants Walk Crimdon

Join us for an outdoor walk and talk, discovering the rare coastal wildflowers and plants that can be found at Crimdon Dene Beach.

Explore the perhaps surprising range of coastal plant habitats that can be found at Crimdon Dene Beach on a guided walk with Durham Wildlife Trust’s botanist Julia! 

You will learn how to identify some of the rare grass and wildflower species that live along our coastal seascapes, and discover why they can be found there.  

The talk will take place at a few different locations along Crimdon Dene Beach and dunes. Having a walk along the North East coast in August bring us the opportunities to see and appreciate the plant associations of this unique coastal line at its best. We can catch a glimpse of dune plants, plants in flower and plants that have gone to seed, producing interesting shapes and late coming ones that will thrive through the Autumn. 

Booking is essential. 

Please wear suitable outdoor and weather appropriate clothing and footwear. 

This is a SeaScapes Coastal Wildlife Group event, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
