If you would like to improve your understanding and knowledge of the University's wildlife you might like to join us on a guided walk. Most of these will run over lunchtime and offer an opportunity to plan in a break, get some exercise and learn something interesting along the way.
Dialogue Signposts will be used to announce dates and new walks as they are added to the programme.
2013 Walks Programme
Friday June 7th: 'Birdsong for Absolute Beginners'. Woodland birds are difficult to see once the trees leaf up but if you can get to grips with their songs it opens up a whole new dimension of interest to a lunchtime walk. If you can't tell your robins from your wrens but would like to make a start, join Allan Watson for a lunchtime wander into High Wood. Meet at 1230 outside the Health and Safety Office on the Lower Mountjoy Site. Numbers limited - pre-booking essential - go to https://apps.dur.ac.uk/tcbs/ and the walks are listed under Biodiversity Project.
In addition to the guided walks, we are developing a range of routes that you can follow yourself at any time.
There are currently 2 self-guided walks, prepared by Phil Gates, with leaflets for you to download and take with you. Both start within the Botanic Gardens
