A guided walk looking at the varieties of fruits and seeds found in autumn will take place at Lydiard Park on 6 October.
Lydiard Park warden Mark Eborn will lead the walk around the Swindon Borough Council-owned park on Sunday, October 6 looking for autumn fruits and seeds in the hedgerows and woodlands.
In the past, these would have been gathered to make jams and preserves for the winter ahead as well as being a very important food source for wildlife. After the warm summer, there’s an abundance of natural produce in the park, which can provide for both humans and wildlife alike.
The free walk will be taken at a gentle pace and most of the route is on even ground. Places do need to be booked in advance by calling Lydiard House on 01793 770401 or emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
Walkers are advised to meet outside the Forest Café at the Lydiard Park Visitor Centre at 10.30am and should wear appropriate footwear and clothes depending on the weather conditions.
