Whitebeam Wonders Discovery Walk

Saturday 23 September 2023 at 10:00 am to 12:00 pm


Why are the whitebeams in the Avon Gorge a wonder?

Just what is it about Bristol’s amazing Avon Gorge that gives us 5 species of whitebeam which grow here and nowhere else in the world? Discover the answers in the Botanical Gardens with curator Nick Wray, and then pop over to the Downs’ Gully to delve deeper with rare species expert, Libby Houston. Here we’ll wonder at wild specimens and investigate the variations.

£7.50 per person

Walk will be around the Downs and Botanic Gardens. Full details will be given after booking.
